#Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary

Twice a week our dedicated staff unloads a truck full of fruit and veggies. It is the food for the 115 resident chimpanzees at our sanctuary.

We could not run our sanctuary without their hard work and dedication. 💚

Thank you Hannah!

Our education intern aka “Hannah Banana” is leaving our outreach team. She has been a great help in developing education materials, including many Roots & Shoots activities. Hannah also helped to set up composting in the sanctuary!
Additionally she went on 3 field trips with the team to train teachers about environmental education.

Dear Hannah, we wish you all the best. Please don’t forget your Tacu-family💚

We welcome volunteers, students, interns and researchers at Tacugama!

#Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary

In nature, chimpanzees spend most of their time foraging for food and exploring their habitat. The rescued chimps at Tacugama have a lot more leisurely time. That is why we give them different kind of enrichment every day. To keep them entertained and/or to stimulate their natural behavior.

What can you do to help?

Support us this #givingdayforapes🙌
It costs US$50 to provide basic enrichment articles for one week for our chimps.

Early giving is open and every penny counts🙏

Bubbles🫧

When they are happy, we are happy🙌
And all the chimps at Tacugama get excited when we blow them bubbles. It’s one of the many enrichment items we provide for them. In most cases enrichment we present, helps them to stimulate their natural behavior, like artificial termite mounts which we fill with honey or we spread nuts that they need to crack, but sometimes we just give them something for fun. Like bubbles 😊

For US$50 we can provide basic enrichment articles for one week for our chimps. Will you support us this #GivingDayforApes?

🙌 MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT

  • In partnership with the Sierra Leone Ministry of Finance and Ministry of Tourism & Cultural Affairs – We are thrilled to announce that The World Bank has approved the development of an Innovation Centre and Botanic Gardens at Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary.

The Innovation Centre will house a rooftop bar/café, large screening room to feature films and documentaries as well as lectures, live storytelling and theatre, interactive learning space to display environmental threats and impacts (including the contributing factors leading to Sierra Leone’s 2017 landslide), library, multi-media training facilities, and permanent exhibition hall.  

Not only would the Innovation Centre create new jobs, strengthen the country’s tourism sector, bolster environmental education, and capacity building, but will also encourage Sierra Leoneans to join Tacugama’s conservation efforts across several platforms, including – #arts, #technology, and #science. As for the Botanic Gardens, once completed – it will become the country’s first commercial venture of its kind. Visitors will be able to view a wide range of species, including – medicinal plants and their traditional uses in local communities, plant species exclusive to #SierraLeone.

We’re keen to partner with businesses, academic institutions, leading public and non-profit orgs from around the world to create networks of expertise, through which innovative research, services and systems can be developed to fight #climatechange.

Climate change affects everyone. So naturally, we feel that only by rallying everyone together under a collective vision, with ideas, alternative services, additional training, and new job opportunities that we can generate enough momentum to tackle climate change.
