Since a few of our friends are publishing pictures of their visit and/or stay at J.A.C.K. we would like to add extra information regarding volunteering at our Sanctuary.
So far, J.A.C.K. has started building part of its volunteer camp and more works and money are needed to finish the whole camp. This is the reason why we can’t currently accommodate friends from abroad and why we haven’t started our volunteer program made of friends coming from abroad…..
However, people living in Lubumbashi and wishing to give a hand are always welcome ; this is why Karine is working with us these days before her departure in midth of 2015.
PICTURE OF THE DAY – enrichment of the environment is necessary to captive animals. This is the reason why our current local volunteer, Karine, is using her artistic and all her do-it-yourself skills to improve everyday’s environment of our hairy friends. Colorful items and shimes are regularly hung all around the open air playgrounds to keep our friends’ attention.
Many thanks Karine for your time and forall that you do!
Thank YOU for THEM!
PICTURE OF THE DAY – we were too fortunate any flu outbreak had started so far at J.A.C.K. But the bad weather conditions (heavy rains) have initially lead to runny noses and then to the first signs of flu (sneezing, inactivity, loss of appetite, fever, coughs, etc). J.A.C.K. is currently using the drugs it was donated last July in France thanks to a wonderful donation of Friends of J.A.C.K.
Let’s keep our fingers crossed this outbreak won’t cause too much damage!
PICTURE OFTHE DAY – enrichment toys are part of the daily routine of our orphans and all toys are always filled with fresh fruit, nuts or any other kind of treats
Luna had eaten up all the treats and seemed worried she couldn’t find more… she turnt the toy upside down, looked inside…but nothing was left…
