The Vervet Monkey Foundation (VMF), South Africa comes to Spain and presents the Vervet Forest movie publicly for the first time here to raise awareness and as a benefit for the monkeys. The VMF is an accredited primate sanctuary caring for more than 500 primates who have been orphaned, injured, abused or as a result of human-wildlife conflict.
The film is a story about 5 orphaned vervet monkeys who were rescued and integrated with monkey foster mums. The movie incorporates the bigger picture, the environment, different cultures and perceptions and how we also play a part. It's a touching and heart warming movie featuring some very cute baby monkeys 🙂 The film will be in English with Spanish subtitles and has been shown internationally at many screenings and film festivals.
We are also excited to welcome speakers from Playa Patrol and Sea Shepherd about how we can help the oceans.
There will be a delicious 100% organic, plant-based lunch included in the ticket price including dessert, a chance for networking, a chance to buy items at the silent auction.
Josie Du Toit - Director of the Vervet Monkey Foundation will be presenting the movie with an opportunity for questions and answers
