Macaque Awareness Stall

Macaque Awareness Stall

As part of the Department of the Environment’s Barbary Macaque Awareness Campaign, a Macaque Awareness Stall will be held this Saturday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm outside the ICC in Main Street. The event is being jointly organised with Monkey Talk – Gibraltar who will also be taking the opportunity to carry out a ‘Monkey Survey.’ The results of the survey will help assist the Department’s ongoing efforts to better understand the varying public perception toward the macaques and ultimately how we can best co-exist with them. 

The event will also serve to showcase some of the day-to-day work carried out by the Department’s Macaque Management Team well as the Gibraltar Veterinary Clinic. Staff members from the Department will be at hand throughout the event to provide general information and feedback.  

Members of the public are encouraged to visit the stall on the day to learn more about our Barbary Macaques, which are not only an asset, but also an inherent part of Gibraltarian culture. A number of activities are planned for the day including face painting, a cake raffle and more!
