The community eco-guards in Loma Mountains National Park are trained by Tacugama to obtain evidence of logging, hunting and setting of snares within the Park. They also know how to identify wildlife remains, chimp footprint, nests, and feeding remains.
These hero’s of wildlife conservation are vital to protect Loma’s critical chimp population and safeguarding the park’s rich biodiversity.

Help us this #givingdayforapes Apes with environmental education in 14 schools around Loma.
This year Tacugama’s Kids Environmental Education Workbook is officially integrated in Sierra Leone’s National Curriculum. Children from all 18.000 schools will now get the opportunity to learn more about the Country’s National Animal – the Western Chimpanzee as well as a range of other topics, including the effects of deforestation, the role species play in our ecosystem and ways to protect Mama Salone💪
A true milestone and we are ready to take the next step by implementing the program in 14 schools in Loma Mountains National Park.

With only 5500 chimps left in the wild and the alarming rate of chimpanzees we still receive at our sanctuary, we have no time to lose.That’s why we dedicate this year’s campaign to our project in Loma Mountains National Park, where we protect the highest concentration of chimps anywhere in West Africa!
Giving Day for Apes (GDFA) is a worldwide fundraising contest between accredited sanctuaries for apes in America, Asia and Africa.From today on we have a whole month to raise as much funds and awareness as possible for our closest relatives.With your support we can win big prizes on Giving Day on October 12, and all donations coming in from today until October 12 on the platform will count towards Giving Day incentive awards.Your support, through direct donations and fundraising will determine how incentive funds are awarded by the hosts of this event: the Arcus Foundation – Great Ape Conservation and the Global Federal of Animal Sanctuaries.

Today, on #internationalprimateday 🐵, we introduce to you: Bidi! ❤
Bidi is originally from Bo district. A mechanic had her until he was informed of the fines he would have to pay if kept her so he gave her up and she was brought to us by IMATT (International Military and Advisory Training Team) when she was 3 years old, back in in 2007.
Since then Bidi has become one quiet young adult female leader of the group New C.
She has the “power” of stomping her feet really loud. She enjoys eating bulgur, oranges and cucumbers.
Many years ago Bidi lost her best friend and since then she is open and excited to make new friends.
Tika & his friends are consuming 250kg of fruit & vegetables daily! 🍌🍇🍊
