IFAW has learned with sorrow of the tragic passing of Rita Miljo, founder of the Centre for Animal Rehabilitation and Education (C.A.R.E.), a devoted and tireless champion for the cause of baboons in South Africa and primates around the world.

Mrs Miljo died in a fire that devastated C.A.R.E.’s premises near Phalaborwa, in the Northern Province on Friday, killing her and her dear “friend’ Bobby, a female Chacma baboon she rescued in Namibia in the late 1980s. Bobby was the inspiration for Mrs Miljo starting C.A.R.E. Three more baboons also died in the blaze.

They all look fat and healthy, like the rest of the Amboseli elephant population, thanks to our good rains.

If you haven’t seen the consultation paper, you can download it here. For IFAW’s breakdown of what the marine reserves will mean for you as a water-loving Australian you can read my earlier post here.
