#Paintings of the chimpanzee Santino













Är det någon därute som har eller vet någon som har en tavla målad av schimpansen Santino i Furuvik? Han gillade att måla under min tid i parken. Hans tavlor såldes och inbringade mycket pengar till olika schimpansprojekt i Afrika. Jag har några kvar i min samling men skulle bli glad att få tag i fler eller i alla fall få fota utav dem. Anledningen är att dom åter ska användas till fundraising för utsatta schimpanser i Afrika.
Här kan ni se en gammal artikel plus två tavlor.
Hör gärna av er till mig om ni har något tips eller vet någon som kan ha en tavla.
Santino saknad och aldrig glömd! ♥/ Ing-Marie

# Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary


On May 25th, Osman, a baby chimp about 2 years old was rescued in Moyamba -District (Southeast of the Country) by Tacugama Camp Supervisor Willie Tucker and the National Protected Area Authority Rangers John Bangura and Eric.

After his mother was killed by hunters who caught her in a snare, Osman was brought to the village where he was kept as a pet for two weeks until an informant contacted Tacugama to rescue him. Osman arrived in good physical health to the Sanctuary but his mental health is not yet recovered. Fairly afraid of human presence the baby chimp is adapting slowly to Mama P’s constant care and love.

Unfortunately, law enforcement on wildlife crime in Sierra Leone is still an issue that must be addressed urgently. Tacugama is working hard on this matter, seeking for partners or supporters to increase awareness and advocacy to promote laws that help to improve the future of the wildlife in the country.
