CONSERVATION OF A SPECIES GOES ALONG WITH EDUCATION. Thanks to our work of spreading awareness in the city of Lubumbashi, no more chimpanzees have been seen on sale/illegaly detained since 2014!


J.A.C.K. is taking care of Eastern chimpanzees. One of their distinct traits is that they have a pale face when they are young and that it darkens when they reach adulthood.

Here is AFRICA in 2009 and in 2018

Luna is a very playful female chimpanzee. She is very clever and always full of misschief! Look at her eyes!

UPDATES ON BAPU – Nearly 4 weeks n9w that Bapu was operated. Look at the wound: it is clean and healing well despite the fact Bapu touched it!

Also look at Bapu’s tummy! Since she is not allowed to move much nor to stand, she has put on weight and looks beautiful!!

Soon Bapu will go in a bigger room for total recovery of her leg! She is very patient!! We are very happy for her!

SHASA is the oldest female chimpanzee residing at J.A.C.K She enjoys water a lot, can swim and has taught her friends not to be afraid of water.

Since his arrival at J.A.C.K., young Mata has always loved watermelons. Unfortunately, we don’t find them all year long and have to import them from Zambia!

Young Kimo is enjoying the quietness of a sunny Sunday!

Tika and Lynn are sitting close to the pond and are enjoying some tasty sugar cane! The sky is bright, the sun is shining… it seems it will be a nice and warm day today!


Young Kaly is joining us to wish you a great weekend!
