HAPPY BIRTHDAY, QUENTIN!!!

Sept. 5th – sad anniversary

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!
