The population of the Cape Peninsula Managed Baboon Troops continues to show positive growth (view PDF table on link below).
This is supported by the ratio of juveniles: adult females in the population being greater than 1.
Another positive trend is that overall mortality is lower than the previous year.
The Adult Sex ratio (number adult males: adult females) is within the normal range for Chacma baboons (Papio ursinus) indicating a healthy male population.
