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.
