COCO IS BLOWING 11 CANDLES TODAY! We rescued him in 2008: he was the pet of high ranking authorities and it took us two years to have him in a group at the sanctuary… Today, Coco is among the ”big boys” we take care of at the sanctuary!!
SURROGATE BROTHERS TOMMY & MATA
Savagely taken from their families killed for their meat, TOMMY & MATA are two young chimpanzee orphans who have developed strong bonds. They are like brothers; a shared and cohesive relationship essential to their survival. J.A.C.K gave them a second chance in life and is glad to see them both happy! ♥
