#Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary

We are extremely sad to inform you that we lost a beautiful lady with a strong personality.

Her name was Josephine, and despite all the hard work of our vet team, she did not survive a respiratory outbreak in the sanctuary 💔

Josephine arrived in Tacugama in 2004. She was just 2 years old. She was kept by a man in Kailahun for about three weeks after he purchased her from a hunter who killed her mother and probably many other family members.

In Tacugama, Josephine grew up to be a strong and dominant female in the group. She often chased humans away as she was not fond of human interaction.
Who could blame her😢
Josephine would always hang out with alpha males, Chota and Jazzy – yes, they share their high rank!

The two males and all of us at Tacugama will miss her a lot 💚
