 ON FEBRUARY THE 14th, LOVE will be celebrated!

Offering the sponsorship of a chimp orphan would be a very special present as it would be totaly different from the traditional flowers, jewelry, perfume… Sponsoring a chimpanzee will for sure be unique for your partner and represent great support for the young orphan rescued from the bushmeat trade!

Tommy, Luna, Nalia and their friends are waiting to become dear to your heart

ARMED RANGERS AT J.A.C.K are important as fighting the trade of endangered species doesn’t always bring you friends! Many thanks to the DRC wildlife authority (ICCN) for giving us Rangers and many thanks to IPPL to help us provide the best to the two Rangers!

CHITA  was already wearing that name before his arrival at lubumbashi zoo. So we kept it…

Chita is a young male and must have been about 2 years old when he arrived in j.a.c.k.

He spent the beginning of his young life in a congolese family. But, becoming too dangerous for them, he was gived to the lubumbashi zoo and we then recovered it.

We called him the “boss” because he always had the build and strength to move forward with the group.
Only, the arrival of a male older than him in the group has changed everything.

Today, he still has a place in the group and always gets respect.

To sponsor one of our chimpanzees and know a little more about their stories, it’s over here on our website  http://www.jackchimp.yolasite.com/support-a-chimp.php

Thank you for following us 🥰

Our keepers are used to hide pieces of fruits (vegetables or other festivities) into our day areas !

It looks like Vida found some of these little hidden surprises, and doesn’t hesitate to taste it all in the high grass for more tranquility 😄

Vitamin C cure!

Thank you to the generous donors for allowing us to offer our chimps these wonderful oranges.

What a good start for the new year !

Every donation matters 💚 thank you for them!

 The whole team and all the chimpanzees of J.A.C.K. want to thank you for the trust and kindness you give them throughout the year 💖

Happiness, Peace and Success are built every day. So let’s start putting all chances on our side.

We wish you all the best !

Happy New Year 2020!

🎄 HAPPY HOLIDAYS to all the Friends of J.A.C.K who follow and help us. Your Trust and Love make us accomplish great things in this forgotte part of the world.

THANK YOU for THEM💚

Every year, health checks take place at J.A.C.K. All the residents of the sanctuary are sedated, blood is drawn, fecal and urine samples are taken (if possible), chimps are weighed, their limbs are measured,etc. Health checks are long moments of stress for the chimps AND for the team as each step of sedation must be made carefully!

This year, J.A.C.K. decided to ask for some assistance. The chimps are getting tall, heavy and it is always interesting to share this experience with friends longing to attend the event! This is how 3 European friends came to help out (2 vets + 1 ethologist). Also,  J.A.C.K. had the chance to welcome Dr Calvi  (Chimfunshi Wildlife orpahange – Zambia) to guide our vet, Dr christian, through the different health check procedures.

Another vet, Dr Theo, was invited to attend the health checks: J.A.C.K regurlarly gives the opportunity to local vets to assist Dr Christian sothat they can gain experience with great apes.

 

Of course, J.A.C.K. team of keepers was very helpful too! They all helped to transfer the sedat individuals to and from the clinic, they stayed next to them until the woke up completely and all the keepers had their routine still going on for the residents who were not darted that day… All the logistic part of the event was run by Papa Ngoy, our head keeper, and by Roxan, co-fonder of the sanctury.

Every person involved had his/her own schedule so that each sedation takes place in the best way; the whole team worked in harmony.

After several days of hard work, the first results of the analyses came out and most of them were good. A few issues such as anemia and urine infection had to be dealt with, which was done immediately by J.A.C.K. vet, Dr Christian.

Once all the sedations were finished, the volunteer assistants flew back home and life got back to normal at the sanctuary.

Many thanks to these volunteers and to the team of JA.C.K. for their interest, love and professionalism.

 

Many, many thanks to the INTERNATIONAL PRIMATE PROTECTION LEAGUE  who offered the needed hypodermic equipment (darts and needles) for this particular event. And, also, J.A.C.K. is grateful to the MINNESOTA UNIVERSITY for its sponsorship regarding some analyses that were carried out and regarding Dr Calvi’s journey and stay in the DRCongo.

Finally, we wish to thank all the Friends of J.A.C.K. sponsoring its residents. Any contribution goes straight to the care and the well being of the sponsored chimpanzees!!

 

THANK YOU ALL FOR THEM!
