🌴Don’t expect to see very young chimpanzee orphans at J.A.C.K! Since 2014 no chimpanzees have been seen on sale on the streets of Lubumbashi and none have been confiscated by DRC wildlife officials in thi part of the country.

From the early beginning, the first aim of J.A.C.K was to do law enforcement and it seems the long years of tireless efforts have yielded good results. J.A.C.K managed to stop the trade in great apes in a city previously known as a hub in ape trafficking.

MATA is the very youngest chimpanzee residing at J.A.C.K . He is nearly 7 and is a little light of hope in this gloomy world of trafficking…

Leaves of banana trees are yummy treats but also great enrichment items!!

21 days without Internet, without SMS and sometimes with no international calls… Our beautiful country is isolating us from the world; so sad…

We are all well. Some chimps were badly sick and are recovering slowly.

MANY THANKS to our Friends, Donors and Adopters for their valuable support during these tough times. Every single donation means a lot to THEM!

KEEP J.A.C.K., ITS RESIDENTS, ITS TEAM AND MY FAMILY (Franck, Roxane & my brother Quentin) in your thoughts. Things aren’t bright in the DRC due to political unrest! So far everyone is doing fine despite there is no Internet anymore and that cell phones might be cut too…

THANK YOU ALL FOR THEM!

Remember, Bapu is the young female chimpanzee who broke her tibia. Also, after surgery, she had to be kept is a small facility to help heal her bone and to prevent her from standing on her leg…

As scheduled, Bapu was sedated for X-rays to check the healing process and we can say that her tibia has healed well and that she therefore has been moved to a bigger facility where she can play, roll, and swing.

However, our young friend is still not allowed to go on the open air playgrounds. The tibia was fractured close to the ankle and the surgeons couldn’t fix a long pin in this part of the bone This is why they suggested Bapu stayed a bit longer inside …

We will keep you updated as Bapu will soon have the company of some of her friends: it is high time she started to be introduced again in her group!

 

 

 

 

 

The PAN AFRICAN SANCTUARY ALLIANCE (PASA) has instaured a program named  ‘Primate Care Training’  which empowers its sanctuary members to give their rescued orphans the best possible care. Therefore, PASA  is sending highly experienced instructors to the sanctuaries to provide customized training for all the animal care staff. This training program  is also kindly supported by the BRIGITTE BARDOT FOUNDATION and covers topics such as hygiene, enrichment, care, security, behaviour, etc.

The DRC sanctuary being  a member of PASA, its team was given the opportunity to be trained by Dr VIDAL Carmen who stayed the whole month of November at J.A.C.K.

Attentive, the keepers and other members of our team really appreciated the doctor spent time with them and all of them were happy about the information received through pictures/videos.

Of course, at the end of the training period, the team of J.A.C.K. was extremely delighted upon reception of PASA’ Primate Care Training Certificate!

Many thanks to PASA for this training program and many thanks also to Dr Carmen for her time and her wish to share her experience!
