Rita Miljo lives with over 500 baboons and she has saved every one of them. To many Rita is an irritant. Baboons in South Africa have been traditionally regarded as vermin, animals to be shot at rather than saved. In South African eyes she is a freak. But elsewhere in the world she is revered, often referred to as the ‘Jane Goodall’ or ‘Diane Fossey’ of baboons,’ a visionary whose pioneering work against a backdrop of hate and prejudice is to be celebrated.
