Tommy is in his Saturday mood… Wish I could join him 🙂 !!

MATA is the youngest chimpanzee resident at J.A.C.K. He has become a strong and healthy chimp and he sometimes like to be carried on the back of females. Here he is with LYNN

It’s been a warm and sunny day today! Temperatures even went quite high and therefore TIKA’s group remained close to the pond

All the chimps of Mwisho’s group are outside today! The whole group is now again reunited !! So happy for them!

Volunteer friend Alett from SA offered our residents some juicy sugar canes which they all love! KINA is on the picture below – these sugar canes are her favourite treat!

Great news! Our very sick boys, CHITA, PADDA & SEKI, are doing great! CHITA welcomed me with sparkling eyes this morning. He was playful and happy in his nest of fresh eucalyptus leaves and dry grass… He will probably leave quarantine tomorrow with hi two other friends!

A teethless smile for young Tongo


Great news today for some of our big boys! Yes, the first group that entered into quarantine the other day has been allowed to go outside this morning. They are still a bit coughing, but there are no more runny noses and fever’s gone! Warm weather and fresh air will be good to them! I am so happy to see them again outside!!!

DIAN & WIMBI (below) have their own camouflage style!!

Good progress for CHITA & PADDA who started eating and moving again. Only SEKI was still extremely lethargic and refused any food, which means he isn’t doing well at all as SEKI loves eating!!! Let’s see how he’ll feel tomorrow… Sorry for the bad quality of the pictures; there is no power in the night rooms…
