Our sanctuary was offered pediatric treatments against flu: FERVEX powder which is a combination of Paracetamol and Vitamine C to provide kids just when the first signs of flu appear.
Our very kind donor is a French friend named Franck Goddard who is an ape lover regularly helping other great apes sanctuaries in Africa. This donation will help us a lot since winter has started very early this year as well as runny noses and sneezing
Many thanks to you, Franck, for helping the apes rescued by J.A.C.K. and for being a passionate protector of Great Apes! Sanctuaries like us are extremely happy to have dedicated friends like you, as thanks to your kindness we are able to bring a difference on this planet!
Every morning, food is hidden in the open air facilities so that the chimps search and ‘hunt’ for their food. This activity sometimes last for hours and keeps them all extremely busy as food is hidden in different places every day.
But then comes the moment nothing is left and the chimps keep on searching… This part of the game can last for hours too …
Baby Luna was introduced last year in August. Today, she is the youngest chimp of her group and most of her chimp friends do like her and it’s mainly Africa and Elia, the two eldest females of the group who take good care of her!
We are very happy to see her enjoying life among all her friends! Luna is groing so fast and well!
Our sanctuary hosts a few wild fig trees and their fruit are one of the favorite treats of the chimps! That’s the reason why we regularly keep an eye on these trees as once the fruits are ripe, we must collect them very fast before the birds eat them all….
Today, our boarders get figs every morning because Fabienne is collecting the treats for them. Fabienne is a good friend of J.A.C.K. : she assists me for free every day for enrichment and she also helps Maman Angeline in the kitchen…
Merci beaucoup to Fabienne for your wonderful help and for your wish to give THEM the best!!! It’s great having you around!
See by yourself how Tommy has now become an amazing acrobat! Remember, Tommy was de baby with osteomyelitis…
Today, this little ape is enjoying life in his nursery group and is a young chimpanzee like all his other friends! The footage below will show you how he’s now playing on top of the trees …. we are all impressed! Bravo Tommy! We are all so happy you are doing better!
Seki is among the young males we have in the main group. A few days ago, in the morning, his mouth was totally swollen on the upper right side. His temperature was fine, but we could see it was painful as Seki was very quiet and isolated himself from the others.
After a short quarantine and an antibiotic treatment, Seki is now feeling a lot better and was allowed to join his group again yesterday. His face is ok and once treatment is finished, we would like to sedate him to see what is going on. We believe he has had tooth infection, but only a good check of his mouth can confirm this!
Today, 1st of May, is Labour Day, and we wish to thank our team which works every day at the sanctuary in order to give the rescued orphans the best.
Serge and Pierre are the two people in charge of our green house:thanks to their hard work J.A.C.K. provides fresh vegetable to its boarders! Maman Angeline works in the kitchen: she cleans, cuts and prepare the food for the chimps. Augustin, Eddy, Marcel, Pierre and Mike work directly with the chimps: they feed them, observe them, provide care but also security, and they also keep their night quarters and outdoor playgrounds neat and clean….
MERCI beaucoup à vous TOUS! Many thanks to the 8 of you for your daily dedication to the chimps, Franck and I are very happy to work with you all!
This short footage just to show you how the young rescued chimp of our nursery group do enjoy selecting stick to ‘fish’ for honey . Every morning, we fill the fake ant hill with treats so that the orphans keep their instinct of hunting for food…
