The works to build the facilities to accomodate at best the 25 monkeys from Zimbabwe are progressing very well and we will soon share new pictures for you the appreciate the evolution of what has been achieved.
Today, we would like to introduce the team which has been working since end of October on this beautiful project: welder, bricklayers, painters, electrician and plumber… a complete and wonderful team of artisans known from everyone at J.A.C.K. (chimpanzees included) because they have been part of many many building projects of the sanctuary.
For years, J.A.C.K. could have hired building companies to develop the complex. However, some of these companies here are not serious, work slowly and charge a lot! Therefore, the sanctuary has been working with a qualified team of artisans who are part of the social program of J.A.C.K.: working at the sanctuary thus represents a way to support their families and children… In these times of pandemic, to have a job is very important and the Founders of the sanctuary are happy they can help!
All these workers are always around when J.A.C.K. needs them to improve the complex.
Georges, Kazadi, Moïse, Serge and assitants: thank YOU all for the great work you do at J.A.C.K.!
Year 2020 was a year full of surprises and of great challenges!
We at J.A.C.K. have been lucky to have the incredible support of wonderful people and institutions!
Thank YOU all again for your help! We wouldn’t have been able to provide our team and our residents with all the beautiful care in these tough times of the pandemic. Nor would we have been able to achieve all the superb on-site developments for the team, the chimpanzees and for the monkeys that are coming from Zimbabwe!
We have no words to express how thankful we are as to say ‘thank you’ isn’t strong enough compared to the feeling of gratitude we have towards your generosity… It was great working with all of YOU in 2020 and we hope we will still work with all of YOU in 2021…
” My 1st mission is now over. Sania has gained strength physicaly and mentally. Her place is no longer with me but with others of her own kind. New challenges are to come for this little one at the sanctuary. She will be fine! I am so happy she progressed so well!”
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!
Support the greatest primate rescue ever and help us rehabilitate the 25 monkeys that were seized in Zimbabwe last September and which are meant to be brought back at J.A.C.K, in the DRCongo, the country they originate..

On December 1st, it is GIVING TUESDAY and our sanctuary is part of the event in France.
Since GIVING TUESDAY is a day that encourages to do good, our wish is to collect funds through your generosity in order to feed and provide the 25 coming primates with the best care! You can read more on how to help on the link below by clicking on the #GivingTuesday icon. Keep in mind that every little bit helps especially in these though pandemic times.
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.
It is was a lot of emotion that we share this post! Things have been very tough here between the pandemic and the insecurity caused by its economic crisis. However, we keep hope and we are convinced miracle exist and it is the case with a brand new partner who kindly accepted to offer its generosity to our orphans…
Yes, our sanctuary has indeed been granted incredible support from FOUR PAWS International to contribute to the food supplies of our residents during these tough times of Covid19. Feeding 34 growing chimpanzees is a daily challenge especially when food is scarce or when prices suddenly increase… Therefore, J.A.C.K., its residents and team are extremely grateful for the wonderful aid of Four Paws!
Many thanks again to FOUR PAWS, its great team and generous donors for their beautiful help!
