Orphaned baby monkey celebrates 6 months at CROW

Noah was found outside a shipping yard abandoned and barely alive.


ONE of the first baby monkeys that arrived at the Centre for Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW), in June 2020, is now a boisterous, lively and playful six-month-old. 

Noah was admitted at the centre last June and is growing by the day and now has an adoptive brother,  Chris whom he wrestles with daily.

CROW’s communications officer, Alex Kogl said Noah’s prospects were not so good when he first came to CROW.

“At barely a day-old, Noah was found outside a shipping yard abandoned and barely alive. Worse yet, we found out early into his care that he was lactose intolerant and had to moved to a completely dairy free diet of soy milk.”

The little fighter pulled through and half a year later he is an independent boy with a very sweet nature, according to his caretaker Tayla.

Kogl pointed out that “baby season” is a tough time for CROW each year with dozens of baby animals coming through their doors.

“Noah is one of at least 13 other orphaned baby monkeys at the centre who need round-the-clock care,” said Kogl. 

Anyone who would like to support the work CROW does in taking care of Noah and other animals like him, can make a donation.
