ADOPT A BABOON

The Drill (Mandrillus leucophaeus) is an old world primate similar in appearance and closely related to the mandrill. A notable difference between the two however is the drill baboon’s lack of bright colour on its face. The species is recognised as endangered by the IUCN and they are entirely dependent on conservation with estimates suggesting there are less than 3,000 remaining in the wild, with similar declines in zoo populations across the world.

The populations are only found in small parts of Africa with their entire range covering less than 40,000km. Very little research has been conducted into the wild behaviour of the Drill but they are known to migrate according to the seasons but as their range has declined it has become increasingly difficult for them to migrate.

Threats To The Drill Baboon

  • Drill baboons are hunted across their range for bush meat, and it is a common for hunters to be accompanied by dogs who will herd up an entire group for the hunters to shoot.
  • The largest threat comes from deforestation and habitat destruction to make way for human dwellings and agriculture.
