Do you remember? Coco’s right eye had been hurt probably in a fight and he was sedated to have an eye check. He then had to remain isolated from the others to receive appropriate care.
Today, Coco is doing great and it sees his eye problem belongs to the past! He is now back with his friends in his group.
So happy for him!
🐵 I AM TIKA, THE ALPHA and I won’t let Pundu get my piece of sugar cane. He is very playful as he wants to steal it from me🤣
🐵END OF THE DAY IMPATIENTNESS- Mata, Luna and Elia are hungry and ready to enter the night room. They just come closer to greet me before the last feeding
🎂HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, WANZA!
14 years that we rescued him. Alcohol harmed his growth. Today Wanza is as tall and strong as the big boys of his group!
During the 5 months of lockdown of our sanctuary we hosted the families of two of our staff members at our private house.
There were 5 children et it was great seeing them run and play in our garden. Remember, two of the kids had become “Super Heroes”.
Then, baby Eliezer arrived – a little boy born last August in times of trouble and demonstrations… He was staying with us too
Today, now that lockdown has been lifted, each family has gone back home. We sayed goodbye with plenty of tears in our eyes s very strong bonds have been created with some of the family members. This experience has been intens – we miss our Super Heroes already!
Before the children left they were given the chance to go to the sanctuary. They had never seen the place where their parents worked, so, it was amazing to the to meet the chimps and to see their parents at work.
We are glad everyone is now back home. However, since the virus is still around, no one can go back to a normal life just like before. At J.A.C.K. and at home we have set up new sanitary measures.
End of lockdown announced by Mr MUIR, Provincial wildlife authority. Our team has remained 5 months without leavng the comlex. A huge sacrifice. Today, all our staff members can go back home although the virus is still in town and around the sanctuary. A sanitary protocol will be implemented on August 31st at night.
Many thanks again to our ICCN partner for having guided J.A.C.K. through these stressful and tough times of pandemic!
