Officials are happy but I am not sure about happiness amongst monkeys to be relocated on islands with limited food and no water source.

Now the Wild life Education Centre + other 'relevant' government officials have to continuously monitor the developments concerning the monkeys welfare on the islands. It is now their responsibility.
