What do you think MATA did to have such awesome haircut??

JAK &TOUZO were 2 orphaned chimpanzees we rescued and who were killed in the 1st arson we went through in 2006. Someone put fire in the night room were the babies were sleeping: 3 managed to escape the flames, 2 died…

*JAK burnt to death in his sleep while TOUZO crossed the flames and left us a few days later because of the heavy burns he had…

These 2 orphans were tragically taken from us and, despite our grief and the insecurity we are facing ith our mission of saving apes, they both gave us more strength to achieve our mission: rescuing chimpanzees.

Today, 12 years after this arson, our pain and sorrow are still deep and hard to bear! I can’t find the words as I really regret they are no longer with us…

JAK &TOUZO, you are both still in our hearts!

J.A.C.K., a mini world of Love, Welfare and Hope for orphaned chimpanzees. A small world full of Peace where they are given a second chance to live before going back to the wild…

April 22nd is Earth Day!

Since we have only one planet,

let’s all work tohether to keep it healthy and strong!

FINALLY we have Internet back after it got again totally shut down in the biggest cities of the country…

PICTURE OF THE DAY – Maman Angeline has been the surrogate mom of all our rescued orphans. Today, as J.A.C.K. has stopped the trade in Great Apes in this part of the DRC and since J.A.C.K. hasn’t had any newcomer for several years, Maman Angeline is still the chimps ‘mom’ and mainly cares about their tummies as she is in charge of the kitchen. Thank you, Maman Angeline!!

PICTURE OF THE DAY – Wild chimpanzees hunt for food and, at J.A.C.K., we hide food every day sothat our residents keep this natural instinct of foraging.

On today’s picture, baby Mata is hungry and is looking for food

PICTURE OF THE DAY – J.A.C.K. sanctuary is located South DRC, not far from the Zambian border
