Welcome to the Community Baboon Sanctuary

The Community Baboon Sanctuary is a pioneering project in voluntary grassroots conservation.

The goal is to sustain the habitat of the Black Howler Monkey (called ‘baboon’ in the local Creole dialect) while promoting the economic development of the participating communities. Over 200 private landowners in 7 villages stretching over 20 square miles have voluntarily pledged to conserve their land for the protection of the Black Howler Monkey.

The result has been an innovative project in sustainable ecotourism that protects the habitat for the endangered Black Howler Monkey and other species while offering a unique opportunity for visitors to experience the rain forest and witness Black Howler Monkeys in the wild. The population of the Black Howler Monkey’s in the sanctuary has risen to over 2000 monkeys or more.  We also have a large concentration of large cats (jaguars, mountain lions and pumas).  Almost weekly sightings reported on our road.
