#Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary

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.

#J.A.C.K – PASA

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!

#Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary

//News from our Outamba,Kilimi, Kuro Hills, Pinseli-Suya Project (OKKPS)//

In June, Wild Chimpanzee Foundation, the leading applicant for the OKKPS project, ended its four-day working visit to Sierra Leone. The visit was mainly centered around working with Tacugama’s OKKPS Finance team to review budgeting and administrative procedures. However, WCF also had time to visit the office of the National Protected Area Authority (NPAA).

NPAA, TCS, and WCF held a brief but fruitful meeting to discuss the advancement of the OKKPS project that covers both conservation work in Sierra Leone and Guinea. Emphasis was laid on ensuring the transboundary nature of the project, whereby project partners have good communication and strong coordination which are essential for the success of the EU-funded initiative as we move forward into Year 2

Our biggest reward? Happy faces💚

They lost their homes and their families. At our sanctuary we give them the best possible care and a new family. It’s not easy, because they all arrive very traumatized and often malnourished.
So when we see them happy and even smile every once in a while, brightens up our day and maybe yours too.

If you would like to support the care of the 111 resident chimps, please take a look at our webshop for the options.
