#Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary

We want to extend a very warm THANK YOU to everyone who was able to attend our Happy Hour Event at the @Atlantic Lumley to introduce our upcoming Chimpanzee National Animal Awareness & Protection Campaign!

With the Western Chimpanzee declared the National Animal in 2019, Tacugama is proud to launch the National Animal Campaign to spread awareness amongst Sierra Leoneans to promote greater understanding and encourage pride in their national symbol! Conserving chimpanzees means protecting forests and water catchments, promoting One Health and sustainable livelihood initiatives, and much more!

This campaign will officially take off in January 2022 and we are so excited to have the support and collaboration of so many organizations with this nationwide campaign. Special thanks to @Izelia for showcasing their superb Salone fashion and to @Apes like us – GLOBIO for their collaboration for this campaign!

Stay tuned for more info on our latest nationwide endeavor!

#Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary

When 15-month old Monro arrived at Tacugama in 2018, he was in a bad state. He was very skinny and had wounds on his abdomen from being tied up on a rope. Today Monro is becoming a big boy, very charismatic and full of energy!

Thanks to the compassionate care from our staff and thanks to you! Your donations make it possible for us to care for the 106 rescued chimpanzees in our sanctuary.

Did you know that for only 5 USD per month (60 USD a year) you can become the guardian of 1 of the ambassador chimps. Please take a look in our brand new webshop:

➡️ https://www.tacugama.com/shop/

When you become a guardian, you will get a monthly update about the well being of the chimp you choose and interesting information about the sanctuary and our conservation projects.

Thank you💚

Do you remember little Someone?

The majority of the chimpanzees at Tacugama are orphans, but Someone is one of the lucky ones to grow up with his own mum, Somebody, at the centre.

Someone is now a two year old boy and he has a good friend in Rasta. They both stay very close to their mums but they also spend a lot of time together.

You can become the guardian of Someone and his mum Somebody!

Please support mum & son:
