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 www.givingdayforapes.razoo.com/organization/Jack-9 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!

J.A.C.K. Sanctuary is a self-funded Congolese NGO created in 2006 by Franck and Roxane Chantereau.

Chimpanzees were being sold and smuggled for the meat trade through their home town of Lubumbashi. The chimpanzees were often locked in cages and boxes with no water or food.

In an effort to stop this illegal trade, Franck and Roxane partnered with the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) Environmental authorities to enforce the laws protecting endangered wildlife.

J.A.C.K is a sanctuary that provides these legally confiscated chimpanzees with a decent home and with all the love and care they need to recover mentally and physically from the trauma they have endured as a result of the illegal trade.

Because of Frank and Roxane’s commitment to establishing J.A.C.K., today no more chimpanzees are for sale on the streets of Lubumbashi.

However, although J.A.C.K. has been successful in its mission to stop this illegal trade, their is an ongoing need to feed and look after the health of these rescued chimpanzees. This is no simple task. Things aren’t that easy in this part of the world. The DRC is constantly at war or regularly goes through political unrest that makes getting even the basic supplies such as food and medicine a difficult and expensive task.

J.A.C.K relies solely on donations and needs additional support. A small donation of just $5 could ensure a chimp is getting the required care it needs such as nutritional food, medicine and enrichment items.

Please donate to us to help us give these amazing chimpanzees the life they deserve and help us put a stop to the illegal trade of apes to ensure they will be with us for many more years to come.

Thank YOU for THEM!

 

PICTURE OF THE DAY – Tommy is hesitating “Shall I put the stick on the left? or on the right? “

SHASA is our “big” girl as she is the oldest female we have at J.A.C.K. She isn’t blind in one eye… The second eye is healthy and “inside” as a result of a terrible shock she had the day she was legally confiscated in Kinshasa by DRC Environment officials… Her owner/trader ran away when seeing the police and hit the bag in which he had hidden the baby ape. When the environment inspectors opened the bag, they discovered Shasa’s left eye was bleeding…

DOGUY – 14 days after surgery: suture is healing very well; still 1 thread has to fall off !! Young friend Doguy is adjusting extremely well to his new life and will soon go back in his group..

Franck had to fly to Kinshasa for a few days and was lucky to stay with Claudine André, her family, her sanctuary and the bonobos… It’s always ‘revitalising’ to be with our bonobo family!!!
