Young chimpanzee MATA has just had his 5th Anniversary at J.A.C.K. time is flying by!
Mata’s anniversary is very imprtant to all of us at the sanctuary since he represents a victory against ape trafficking in the DRC. This young chimpanzee was confiscated 5 years ago and, since then, no other chimpanzees have been seen on the streets f Lubumbashi nor smuggled through the zabian border! Mata s the proof that wildlife trafficking can be stopped and he also represents HOPE to all the other wildlife organisations working daily to stop that illicit business!
