VIDEO – When the weather is hot, our orphans do enjoy iced treats. LYNN apparently seems to like her iced treat made of stewed fruits (apples & pears)

PICTURE OF THE DAY – Young male WIMBI was eating leaves and picking them one by one as if he were playing that funny “she loves me, she loves me not” game…

The French Charity “Les Amis de JACK” managed to buy all the needed medecines for the chimp orphans of J.A.C.K. and, today, all the donations are already locked into Roxane’s suitcases as she is going to fly back home to Congo very soon.

Of course, all this hasn’t been possible without the priceless support from following donors: Patti C, Marie-Odile L, Valérie S, Brigitte S, Thierry C, Lorène S and Valérie L. Dear donors, your unconditionnal Love for THEM helps us make great achievements; thank YOU all so much for THEM!

Before ending, we also would like to thank our team from our French charity as well as the chemist who does his best to provide the chimps with all the medecines they need!

 

COCO is one of our big males of the main group. He  is very strong and full of muscles but once he relaxes, he seems very calm and harmless

Young LUNA is extremely brave and nothing scares her. To go from one jungle gym to another, she takes an adventurous jump! MATA & KALY, however, seem less confident than their best friend LUNA and just slide down…

Although babies MATA & KALY were rescued from different places and at different times, they have developped very strong bounds as if they were brothers and sisters!

 

As said previously, all our orphans sleep in the night rooms at night for security reasons. So, every evening, they go inside and get the last meal of the day. This time, young female BAPU is reluctant to enter the night facilities, which makes the others quiet nervous! TIKA, the dominant, therefore, comes outside and goes back with his group once BAPU has finally joined the others!

VIDEO – Comme déjà mentionné à maintes reprises, tous os pensionnaires sont rentrés dans les structures de nuit pour des raisons de sécurité. En général, nos amis rentrent facilement, car ils savent qu'ils vont recevoir leur dernier repas de la journée. Là, les chimpanzés rentrent assez calmement mais commencent à s'énerver et TIKA ressort d'ailleurs, puisque la jeune BAPU a décidé de rester à la traîne …—–VIDEO – As said previously, all our orphans sleep in the night rooms at night for security reasons.

It’s winter at J.A.C.K. : days can be very hot but temperatures drop drastically when night falls. To prevent flu, bronchitis and other respiratory issues, J.A.C.K. keepers add fresh eucalyptus leaves in the chimp beddings: they chew the leaves for hours which not only provide a lovely fragrance but also clear airways. Our chimps just love eucalyptus leaves!!

PICTURE OF THE DAY – Food was set all around the open air play grounds. Both Lynn & Maïka (right) remained hidden in the high grass to eat their treats

Maman Angeline is the ‘boss’ of the kitchen. Every day and for as long as our sanctuary is getting donations, Maman Angeline prepares between 120 and 150kgs of food as well as 90 liters of liquids (45l of milk + 45l of tea). The chimps are very lucky to have someone like her.

Thank you, Angeline, for caring so much about THEM!
