What can you do when you are in Morocco on holiday or traveling:

  • Do not EVER buy a macaque from a seller, even out of sympathy. This will only stimulate the trade further, for the one individual that you save many others will follow.
  • If you see a macaque for sale, contact the local department of Eaux et Fôrets, the responsible authorities, and ask them to confiscate it.
  • Show your disapprovement of the trade when you see a macaque for sale. Tell the seller you find it unacceptable.
  • Do not EVER take a picture with a macaque that is offered to you like on the square in Marrakech. Show the handlers that you disapprove of this.
  • Write a letter to the Haut Commissariat aux Eaux et Fôrets in Rabat and ask them to put a halt to the illegal trade in Barbary macaque infants. Address: 3, Rue Haroun Errachid, Agdal, Rabat – Morocco
  • Take pictures of wildlife trade that you encounter whenever you can and send these pictures to us please. Also let us know where you took the pictures.
