Four Paws supports J.A.C.K.

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!

Coco back in his group

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!

Goodbye, Super Heroes!

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 the lockdown of the sanctuary

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!
