Rescue 25 of primates – works (part 5)

Works continue at J.A.CK. in order to accomodate at best the 25 Congolese monkeys that were smuggled through the Zambian border last September and which were confiscated by the Zimbabwean Wildlife Authorities.Today, these monkeys are still kindly being looked after by a NGO of Zimbabwe partnering with the Zimbabwean Wildlife Aurthorities

Thanks only to the generosity of J.A.C.K. donors, the works can be achieved to make this wonderful project come true! The 4 satellite cages are now completely finished and ready to welcome the monkeys. Also, the kitchen is nearly ready too and so are the two small outside enclosures.

Many, many thanks to the donors who made the building of these facilities possible. They are amazing people with an amazing and passionate heart!

Rescue of 25 primates – works continue (part 3)

Thanks to the great kindness and trust of wonderful people and organizations, our sanctuary has managed to build 2 of the 4 satellite cages. More works are on progress as we also need a small kitchen, water, electricity, jungle gyms, etc.

Rescue of 25 primates: works continue (part 2)

Thanks to the beautiful generosity of amazing partners and donors, our Founders have been able to launch the works to built 4 huge facilities to accomodate the 25 coming primates.

Today, 2 of the facilities are nearly ready – the roof will be fixed in the coming hours.

Many thanks again to the incredible institutions who make this challenge come true:

Dear Partners and Sponsors, thank you again for everything! Without your support, J.A.C.K. wouldn’t be able to achieve all this!

Thank YOU for THEM!

The works to host the 25 monkeys have started (part 1)

So far, J.A.C.K. sanctuary has always been home to chimpanzees.

However, the latest known issue of primate traficking didn’t leave Franck  Roxane, the Founders of J.A.C.K.,  untouched and they decided to rescue these poor creatures that were smuggled from the DR Congo and stopped/confiscated at the Zimbabwean border on their route to South Africa, and most probably China… These monkeys are endemic to the DRC – they have to return to their home country and live nowhere else!

While negociations were ongoing between the wildlife authorities of Zimbabwe and of the DR Congo, J.A.C.K. had to find funds to build the most appropriate facilities for the 25 monkeys.

Thanks to the valuable support of PASA and of several donors and partners, Franck and Roxane managed to launch the first steps of this brand new construction project.

For the last 10 days, the team of artisans used to work at J.A.C.K. ( bricklayers, welder, plumber, etc.) has indeed worked hard to make this adventure come true. The monkeys are meant to arrive next week, so we keep our fingers crossed everything will be fine!

See below the evolution of the works: from October 28th till today, November the 7th.

J.A.C.K. is extrememly thankful to all the people who have been involved and who are still involved in this rescue! It is a good thing works can progress daily!

Also, J.A.C.K. still relies on your generosity as providing shelter to wildlife is one thing; but  to feed it is another thing! Join the fundraiser of J.A.C.K. and provide these monkeys with all that they need!
