The baby chimp Ceasar left Kisangani yesterday. Our on-site crew stayed by his side until take-off, to feed, hydrate and ensure he was safe on the plane. He has now arrived at J.A.C.K. More updates to Follow! ❤
Thank you Pairi Daiza Foundation, for your support. It gave us the opportunity to build a nursery for our rescued chimps. ❤️
Every night, wild chimpanzees build themselves nests and tuck themselves in for a good night’s sleep.
By the morning they’re on the move again and set up camp elsewhere.
Chimps build nests made from branches from one or more trees. They weave together these branches and leaves on both the ground and in the trees, depending on what type of nest it is (nap nest versus night nest).
For safety reasons – there are wild chimpanzees in the area for instance- the rescued chimpanzees at Tacugama do not sleep outside at night. We keep them safe in a dens, where they eat their diner and sleep.
But nothing is keeping them from building a comfortable afternoon nap nest, like Gabie did yesterday 🙌
Happy World Ranger Day🙌
Today we celebrate and honor the vital work of the heroes of wildlife conservation worldwide.
This World Ranger Day 2022 we have a special request. We aim to raise USD 4,000 to cover the necessary equipment our rangers need to expand the scope of their patrols and ensure the survival of the roughly 1,200 chimpanzees estimated to remain in Loma Mountains National Park.
Will you help us reach our goal today🙏
With just a small donation you can help to buy our rangers tents, sleeping bags, sleeping mats, head torches, backpacks and compasses.

This is Loma Mountains National Park🙌🍀
For last year’s Giving Day For Apes we fundraised for the protection of Loma Mountains National Park (LMNP), the home of 1,200 wild chimpanzees.
Your help was an incredible aid and boost to the work Tacugama and its rangers conduct in the park.
However, up to now the rangers are mainly conducting patrols on the border of the protected area. Patrolling inside the park requires even further equipment to camp out at night and go on longer surveillance missions to be able to patrol inside the forest (tents, sleeping bags, sleeping mats, head torches, backpacks, compasses, etc.). These longer patrols can last 2 to 4 days depending on which community they start from and where they patrol inside the park.
That is why we aim to raise USD 4,000 for World Ranger Day 2022 to cover the necessary equipment our rangers need to expand the scope of their patrols.
Are you with us? Support our heroes of wildlife conservation!
Every penny counts!

We support and applaud all kind of environmental awareness and education projects, especially if they aim at changing how people see and perceive chimpanzees.
@impactwildnow launched a crowd-funder to produce a French-narrated film for African broadcast channels, along with a collection of shorts for distribution via WhatsApp, using behavioural research footage filmed across four years in Gabon.
ImpactWildNow: “Many blue-chip programmes about chimpanzees have been made here by mainstream television in the past, but rarely have the local citizens benefited in seeing it. This project aims to change perceptions and behaviour to help inspire the protection of chimps across the Central and West African nations.”
Take a look at their Kickstarter campaign:
A big thank you to @wvscharity for the probiotics donation!
Earlier this year WVS sent us 115 boxes of probiotics. The probiotics are given to the resident chimpanzees as one of the preventative measures to decrease the mortality and the morbidity of the epizootic neurological and gastroenteric syndrome (ENGS) that the Sanctuary deals with every dry season (March-May).
During the aforementioned period no chimpanzee was seen or reported to have any signs correspondent with the ENGS. Therefore the administration of probiotics along with the implementation of other actions seemed to have been effective in the prevention of the ENGS during the dry season in 2022.
Hussein News – Feeling the love and security of a mother is what Hussein needed most. Very soon he will be able to join his group. 💓
All donations will go to J.A.C.K
Chimps across Africa are suffering, sometimes for decades, trapped in tiny, cramped cages. At PASA, we work to bring these chimps to the safety of an accredited sanctuary, where they will receive all the love and care they need. This World Chimpanzee Day, July 14th, we have a great story to share, on how perseverance and an incredible coalition can change the game for endangered chimps. Help free even more chimps by contributing to PASA’s Chimp Rescue Fund! With a donation of $10 or more, you’ll have a chance to win a PASA prize package, too!
