Our residents are extremely fortunate since they were given a huge donation of yellow bell peppers – one of their favourite veggies!!! Many thanks to our friends of Lubumbashi, Misters John & Georges who donated this yummy lunch to the chimps at J.A.C.K. !


PICTURE OF THE DAY – All the chimpanzees you see on this website do come from the illegal bushmeat trade of from the pet trade. These chimpanzees are all orphans and have no parental links with one another. All of them have developped very strong bounds; it s the case of KALY (right) and VIDA on this picture. They are now like two sisters spending their days together!!

PICTURE OF THE DAY – After yesterday’s broccoli bath, TOMMY today seems to enjoy a mud bath!

TOMMY – Broccoli tastes better when eaten while bathing. Just try and see!

PICTURE OF THE DAY – Big boy COCO loves to sit on top of the jungle gym with his feet dangling in the emptiness

PICTURE OF THE DAY – Orphaned chimpanzee Mata (right) arrived shortly after girl friend Kaly. They spent quarantine together and,today, Kaly is like a big sister to little MATA. Both chimpanzees were rescued from the bushmeat trade.
