WEEKENDS ARE MADE TO RELAX, to change one’s mind and to loosen up… It seems TOMMY is sticking to the rule!!

As previously mentionned on social media, Mathilde & Sébastien, two great friends of J.A.C.K., decided they would again, in 2018, support the chimpanzees of the DRC Sanctuary.

They indeed attended both the flea market that was organised in their village on May the 8th. Mathilde and Sébastien were lucky as it was a bright sunny day with mild temperatures! Visitors popped up and our two friends managed to sell items for about 70USD.

J.A.C.K. and its residents are extremely grateful for the support Mathilde and Sébastien bring yearly. They both take of take their time to spend a whole day on spreading awareness and on collecting funds for the  orphan chimpanzees of J.A.C.K. –  this is simply  A M A Z I N G !!!

Thank YOU so much for THEM!

Robyn is an Australian teenager who did some volunteer work at the sanctuary a few months ago. Passionate about wildlife and primates, she flew back home with many great souvenirs in her mind and with the determination of doing her best to support her new furry friends!

This is how, despite all the work she had at school, Robyn managed to organise a fundraiser in Perth, the city where she lives! Thanks to her father, Jason, who is working for 1620 CAPITAL in the DRCongo, Robyn managed to insert J.A.C.K. Sanctuary in the flyer of a famous football event that took place in Perth on March 25th. Yes,  our Congolese Sanctuary indeed shared a whole page in the GLORY DAYS OFFICIAL MATCHDAY PROGRAMME with the Perth football team, PERTH GLORY, as both are being supported by 1620 CAPITAL!

A wonderful idea which enabled Robyn to spread awareness on great apes and J.A.C.K. during an important event and which helped her fundraise 500USD for her chimpanzee friends!

Dear Robyn, thank YOU so much for all that you do for LUNA and the other residents of J.A.C.K. Your Love and Help are greatly appreciated and represent a lot tho THEM!

Also, many, many thanks to Jason and to 1620 CAPITAL for their wonderful support and interest in our action!  Your aid helps J.A.C.K. provide its rescued oprhans with he best care!

Thank YOU all for THEM!

 

TONGO is the young chimpanzee male who got regurlaly sedated in 2017 because of abscesses in the neck. Thanks to Dr Ainare’s intervention of last September, we thought the ape finally got rid of these skin issues as she removed both rotten central upper incisives from where the infection had probably spread through the ENT system.

TONGO

Unfortunately, early May, TONGO developped a new abscess again underneath his right ear.

Therefore, our vet, Dr Jean Claude, decided to sedate TONGO to draw some blood, clean the abscess and take an X-ray of the chimpanzee’s head. All results were negative … TONGO’s health is an issue and we are still working on his case with vets Jean Claude & Ainare…

Also, each time our volunteer vet comes at the sanctuary, J.A.C.K. allows him to bring assistants or vet students to get used to work with great apes. Having his asistants with is a way for vet Jean Claude to spread awareness regarding the sad faith of this species in our DRC forests… These days, Jean Claude’s assitants are Elisabeth, Noëlle & Benjamin.

Thank YOU all for your good work!

 

Greedy CHITA is asking us more bananas!

Most of the chimps are gathered around male SEKI – he probably has something extremely interesting in his hands!!

Chimpanzees are very curious.  Little MATA is trying to touch the camera with a small wooden stick

Chimpanzee PASA likes to follow butterflies and sometimes tries to catch them

If you don’t have any toothpic, ask KINA: she’ll show you how to use a small piece of sugar cane bark!!
