According to the notice which was published on their website, the hotline operator will direct the incoming calls, with regards to any incidents to the respective area managers and eco rangers on duty.


The Overstrand Municpality recommends that videos and images are taken of incidents where baboons are harmed, and that all the relevant additional information provided to the Overstrand Municipality will be passed onto Cape Nature to investigate.
