In South Africa, vervet monkeys (Chlorocebus aethiops) are frequently persecuted, resulting in large numbers of injured and/or orphaned animals. Rehabilitation centres aim to care for these monkeys and ultimately return them to the wild whenever possible. However, it is unknown whether rehabilitation is successful in its goal of creating wild-living,(More)
Mammal rehabilitation is carried out in hundreds of centres worldwide, requiring a large investment of time, personnel and funds. Although there are numerous published studies focusing on post-release outcomes, few have discussed the methods employed in rehabilitation. As an important first step toward addressing this, data were collected directly from(More)
Many primate species are threatened with extinction and are the focus of extensive conservation efforts including re-introduction, captive breeding and habitat conservation. Welfare-based rehabilitation (hereafter also ‘rehabilitation’) is a management strategy commonly used for primates, particularly those species targeted by the pet and bush meat trades.(More)
Primate rehabilitation is challenging but has become crucial as many species are threatened with extinction. Vervet monkeys (Chlorocebus aethiops) are a widespread primate species in Africa. Despite the release of comparatively large numbers of rehabilitated monkeys, the success rate is poor, with low survival. This is partly due to choosing substandard(More)
The pattern of breathing following the breaking-point of sixty breath-holds has been studied in five healthy adults and compared with the pattern during recovery from CO2-rebreathing. The volume and direction of the first respiratory movement, and the VT, V relation for the first four complete breaths was measured. Only when breath-holds were terminated(More)
