These little mammals are poached for their meat and because of their small size, about 3 to 5 adult galagos are needed to compose a local dish.
Galagos are nocturnals. They sleep in the trunks of big trees and live on insects, fruit, tree gums and other small mammals. They are extremely vulnerable…
At J.A.C.K. we now take care of 5 young galago males.

Thanks to a huge French foundation protecting animals, la Fondation Brigitte Bardot, J.A.C.K. has been able to improve its former galago installations and to build brand new ones.

J.A.C.K. really thanks the Brigitte Bardot Foundation for its trust and for its kind generosity.
Tout grand MERCI à la Fondation Brigitte Bardot pour son aide précieuse mais aussi pour la confiance qu’elle témoigne au projet de J.A.C.K.
The aim of J.A.C.K. is to release these animals. They will also go onto the land we have found to start the next step of our sanctuary: the pre-release. The galagos of our project deserve their place into the forest too…
