PICTURE OF THE DAY – It seems our young orphans are extremely focused on getting the treats out of the fake termite mound

ELIA just saw Maman Angeline with the food baskets and pant hoots to tell her friends lunch is on its way 🙂 !!

PICTURE OF THE DAY – Africa was drinking and stared at the water as if she were looking at her reflection … Seeing Africa doing so made me think about that famous story of a queen asking her magic mirror “Mirror, mirror …who is the fairest of all”…

PICTURE OF THE DAY – Tempatures are very high in the afternoon. LYNN likes to sit and rest in the shade

PASA is a young male of nearly 10. He’s among the big ones of his group as he is the second oldes (and biggest male) of his group!

PICTURE OF THE DAY – 4.40pm / Maman Angeline has just fed her hairy ‘kids’. She still has to fix a few things in the kitchen before going home where her other kids are waiting for her… Maman Angeline really is “Superwoman”!

J.A.C.K. team is made of 16 people committed daily to the welfare of the 37 orphan chimpanzees of J.A.C.K.

Friend of J.A.C.K., EVA, who worked with us as in intern last May got an excellent note from the examining board of her school when presenting her internship report. We are so proud of her! Eva is going to start vet studies in the coming months and we are convinced she’ll come back at J.A.C.K. !
