Since early January, we have had very busy weeks at J.A.C.K. as two new enclosures have been built in order to improve the accomodation of the baby chimp group and to extend the night facilities of our main group.
In December, many of you made donations to help us in building new facilities. Remember, 6 chimps in 6 weeks…
USD 1,665 were donated last December by YOU, friends of J.A.C.K. on Wildlife Direct. With this money and the extra donation of other sponsors, J.A.C.K. has built a new enclosure for the infant group.
Which means that today, the 7 very little ones of our project can enjoy life in the open air enlosure AND have their own night facility.
The little ones were very surprised to discover their new territory…

A third enclosure for the main group has been added as well.
It was very important to build this additional night facility as some members of our main group are getting bigger AND stronger!
So, the chimps of J.A.C.K. and J.A.C.K. wishes to thank YOU, donors on Wildlifedirect, but also the Pan African Sanctuary Alliance (PASA) and its sponsors, the Sweden Chimpanzee Trust, le Parc Zoologique de St Martin-la-Plaine, tous les membres et parrains de Little Jak Association, Kitty and her family + friends, le Zoo de la Palmyre, BELL Equipment Congo for your extremely kind generosity.
