Focus on baboons<h2 class="sectHeading">​​​​​​​​​​​Why baboons are important to Cape Town​​​​​​​​​​​​​</h2><p>We have to respect baboons, understanding that they are just trying to adapt to changes in their natural environment, but we also need to be careful of them since they are powerful animals and can be unpredictable. Baboons belong here as much as we do. By acting responsibly, we can continue to enjoy living next door to these charismatic creatures.</p><p>Baboons are also popular with visitors to Cape Town. Nature-based tourism is a big part of our multi-billion Rand tourism industry. More importantly, baboons play a vital role in our natural ecosystem. During their foraging for food, they aerate (introduce air into) the soil, and scattered seeds and bulbs are able to germinate and grow into new plants.</p><p>The Chacma baboon, an icon of the Cape Peninsula, forms part of our <a href="https://www.capetown.gov.za/Explore%20and%20enjoy/Nature-and-outdoors/Our-precious-biodiversity/Preserving-our-biodiversity">rich biodiversity</a> and <a href="https://www.capetown.gov.za/Explore%20and%20enjoy/Nature-and-outdoors/Our-precious-biodiversity/Looking-after-our-natural-heritage">natural heritage</a>.</p><div class="notification with-heading dark-copy light-blue bg-light-grey"><div class="graphic with-border"> <i class="info fastfact">​​</i> </div><div class="desc"><h4>Fast fact​</h4><p>In Cape Town, the few remaining baboon troops of the Peninsula are restricted to living on or around <a href="https://www.sanparks.org/parks/table_mountain/" target="_blank">Table Mountain National Park<i class="icon link-external"></i></a> or in the Hottentots Holland Mountain ranges. The peninsula’s baboons are especially vulnerable and are completely surrounded by human habitation. This makes them isolated and can threaten their genetic diversity. The Cape Peninsula baboons are the only formally protected baboon population in South Africa.</p></div></div><h2 class="sectHeading">​​​​​​​​​​When baboons become a problem​​​​​​​​​​​​</h2><p>Many of our residential areas are near or next to natural environments where baboons thrive. As the city expands we encroach on the baboons’ territory and this can lead to human/baboon conflict.</p><p> <strong>Baboons like our food</strong><br>Fynbos is low in protein and nutrients and it takes a lot of effort for the baboons to sustain themselves on this diet. It’s much easier for baboons to find more nutritious food from a dustbin than to forage. When baboon troops have access to human food, their population density increases by up to five times compared to natural fynbos foraging troops.</p><p> <strong>Be wary of aggressive baboons</strong><br>Old male baboons, dispersing young sub-adult baboons, or female baboons protecting their young offspring, can be aggressive. Young dispersing males naturally move between troops to prevent interbreeding and may end up near urban areas as they look for food. Grumpy old male baboons no longer in leadership roles can also be aggressive towards what they see as a threat in these environments, such as a human or barking dog.</p><p> <strong>People, especially tourists, feed baboons</strong><br>People have, especially in the past, fed baboons at stopping points near natural reserves and parks. This has encouraged baboons to seek out human food. Baboons may become aggressive in an effort to get more food from you. Feeding baboons also teaches bad habits that may ultimately lead to the animals death (usually by euthanasia).</p><p>You may want to read or download a <a href="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/documentcentre/Documents/Graphics%20and%20educational%20material/Baboon_A3-A6_leaflet_Understanding_Baboons_2010-06.pdf" target="_blank">pamphlet</a> for more information on baboons.</p><div class="notification with-heading dark-copy light-blue bg-light-grey"><div class="graphic with-border"> <i class="info fastfact">​​</i> </div><div class="desc"><h4>Fast fact​</h4><p>Feeding baboons is punishable by law!

Their job is to keep the baboons outside the urban edge and prevent raids in town.

Be cautious if you spot them nearby and if they appear aggressive, pack up your picnic and leave the area.</li><li>If a baboon steals your bag, never chase the baboon or try to grab the bag back. The baboon will search the bag, take what it wants (food) and leave the rest. When the baboon moves away, you can collect your bag.</li><li>Place waste in a baboon-proof waste bin. If one isn’t available or too full, take your waste home with you. Baboons raid dustbins and become used to human food.</li><li>When camping, store your food in a lockable box and camping fridge. Remember, baboons are intelligent and some may be able to unzip or unclip items. Food in your tent is not secure!</li><li>Try not to walk dogs in areas known to have baboons. Only allow your dogs off-lead if they are properly trained and obey basic obedience commands.</li><li>If you walk your dogs off the lead and they run off and chase or attack a baboon, call them off before the fight escalates.</li><li>Never try to touch a baboon – you cannot predict how it will react</li></ul><h4> Download our guides and brochures for more information and safety tips: </h4><p> <a href="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/documentcentre/Documents/Graphics%20and%20educational%20material/Baboon_A3-A6_leaflet_Understanding_Baboons_2010-06.pdf" target="_blank">Understanding Baboons Pamphlet</a><br><a href="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/documentcentre/Documents/Graphics%20and%20educational%20material/Baboon-brochure_TOURISTS_2013.pdf" target="_blank">Tourist Baboon Safety Information Pamphlet</a><br><a href="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/documentcentre/Documents/Graphics%20and%20educational%20material/Baboon-brochure_RESIDENTS_2013.pdf" target="_blank">Illegal Activities Against Baboons Information and Reporting Pamphlet</a> </p> <span> <div class="notification with-heading dark-copy pink bg-light-grey"><div class="graphic with-border"> <i class="info note">​​​</i> </div><div class="desc"><h4>Please note</h4><p>Anyone caught feeding baboons may face a fine of up to R10, 000 and/or two years’ imprisonment. </p></div></div></span> <h2 class="sectHeading">​​​​​​​​​​Dealing with baboons – at home</h2><ul><li>Make sure sliding windows have latches on either side; this will stop baboons from pulling the frame and breaking the glass.</li><li>If you keep windows open, make sure the burglar guards are properly fitted.
