2,5 month ago, on Independence Day, The President of the Republic of SIerra Leone, Rtd. Brig. Julius Maada Bio awarded our founder Bala Amarasekaran with The Order of the Rokel for his outstanding services to the republic of Sierra Leone marking
significant steps forward in the country’s respect for its environment and wildlife.
This Sunday we were honoured with a visit by the president, together with his wife, the First Lady and their wonderful children showing us again their support for Chimpanzee conservation and environmental protection.
Our sanctuary is currently closed due to the 3rd wave of Covid-19. But for this very special occasion we were happy to open our doors.
We hope we can reopen soon for all our friends and visitors! In the mean time, stay safe friends!
