Algeria, our colleagues
The message to the local people and all people targeted is: do not buy macaques, do not feed them, the macaque is a protected species both national and international and we should protect them and their habitat. Today Algeria informed me that they will also start targetting people in the ports coming on holiday to Algeria. Also we have been given full support to uplist the species to Appendix I for the next CITES CoP. It is very good to know that now in both the ranging countries of the Barbary macaque we are working hard to protect this unique and threatened species.
