Enrichment is done evrey day. Kaly had found a bag filled with treats (fruit, peanuts, dry fruit) but little Mata (right) decided she would no longer need her ‘present’ and tried to run away with it!

TOMMY & NALIA – Great moments of sharing between 2 inseparable friends… They arrived together at the sanctuary and do still have a lot of common activities together…

TOMMY is part of our ‘Sponsor me’ program; read his story and sponsor him on following link

SCT stands for the SWEDEN CHIMPANZEE TRUST, a Swedish association which actively supports Conservation of chimpanzees. Its Chairman is Mrs Ing-Marie PERSSON, an energetic lady commited to the welfare of chimpanzees in Sweden and Africa. Also, Mrs Persson is a good Friend of J.A.C.K.: she is like family to all of us at the sanctuary as for years she has done much regarding development and chimpanzee sponsorships. Thanks to SCT, J.A.C.K. is running an adoption program in Sweden too!

Today, we would like to thank Mrs Persson, her SCT team , donors and partners for their warm support. Not only do they all help our orphans on a regular basis but they all have recently taken part in the GIVING DAY FOR APES event.  We didn’t know SCT had started its own fundraiser and, of course, we were all surprised and happy to hear they had done their best to offer our 36 residents a huge present of nearly 500 $ !

Dear Friends of SCT, thank you all so much for your wonderful commitment which will indeed improve J.A.C.K. chimps’ routine! You are incredible people!! And know that we are so proud to be part of your Family!!


SPONSOR a chimpanzee of J.A.C.K. and your support will cover both food and veterinary needs of your new ‘hairy’ friend. Join the different orphans to be sponsored on their website (see below) and select which of them will be your new ‘family’ (?) member for the coming 6 months 🌺

Thank YOU for THEM!

The “GIVING DAY FOR APES” fundraising event has come to an end and, although some donations are still coming in, we can already say J.A.C.K. has reached about 47% of the needed funds (10.000$) to cover 3 months of food and vet care for the 36 chimpanzee orphans.

Donations have been collected through 3 different fundraisers:

  •  via RAZOO website of  ‘GIVING DAY FOR APES”
  • via our French charity “LES AMIS DE JACK”
  • via our wonderful friends of the “SWEDEN CHIMPANZEE TRUST” who did their own fundraising event for the chimpanzees of J.A.C.K. in Sweden. Many thanks to You too, SCT Team & Donors!

The funds that have been collected through this woldwide event will enable J.A.C.K. to provide its residents with the best care for the 6 coming weeks. Yes, 6  weeks completely offered by the generosity of great friends but also 6 weeks of relief as these days it’s getting very hard to find decent food for our orphans.

Know that Franck and I are very happy for our ‘hairy’ family and that we both are extremely grateful to the wonderful people who donated. Their solidarity makes us feel less lonely in this part of the world and encourages us to continue the fight!

Thank YOU dear Donors for THEM!

Your support is greatly appreciated!!

Our fundraising event to cover the next 3 month-food expenses for our 36 chimpanzee residents  is soon coming to an end as tomorrow, October 17th, is the last chance for THEM to receive donations! So far, we have already raised nearly 19% of the needed funds and we are extremely grateful to the Friends of J.A.C.K  who have decided to make THE difference for these orphans in this part of the world.

However, there is still a long way to go to reach the so needed global amount (10,000 USD) and we really hope you will be able to participate tomorrow J.

Since every little bit helps, please, consider donating via our fundraising page to  provide THEM with the life THEY deserve.

Thank YOU for your Love and interest!

Thank YOU!

Please, support Tommy and his friends!

TOMMY had had a pellet gone through his right humerus when his group and family were slaughtered to capture him by poachers. His arm (bone) was terribly infected and amputation was an option to save TOMMY’s life. However, Love, care and Tommy’s will to survive have been stronger than the disease and, today, TOMMY is swinging in the trees just like his friends of his group!

Please, on this special GIVING DAY FOR APE, consider supporting Tommy.

Thank YOU!
