In July, the Elewana Collection was pleased to support the Colobus Conservation, when they held their Golf on the Beach Tournament, an event designed to promote awareness for the threatened Angolan colobus monkey as well as raising money to help refurbish their vet clinic, to improve the health of the primates. The organisation was established in 1997 in response to an outcry from local residents about the high number of deaths of colobus monkeys on the Diani Beach road.
This year the aim was to raise funds for the maintenance of the Colobridge project. Each year more than 55 monkeys are hit by vehicles while crossing the Diani Beach Road, and to address this, Colobus Conservation has installed 32 bridges allowing safe crossing for primate species as well as other wildlife. Colobus Conservation needs to raise $13,000 a year to cover maintenance of all 32 bridges, so all funds raised from this year’s Golf on the Beach will go directly towards Colobridge maintenance.
The Elewana Collections is proud to support this worthy cause.
