# Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary












Meet the group of small orphans. Right now there are ten baby chimps in this group with ages ranging from one to three years old. Ten babies that were born in the wild, surrounded by trees, nature and a group of adult chimps to take care of them. Ten baby chimps that in the last year lost their mother to the bushmeat trade and were rescued from the pet trade. Did you know that a wild baby chimp spends 30% of their time during the day playing? According to recent studies by researchers at Tacugama, these babies only spend an average of 10% of their time playing due to the stressful situation they have been through. It takes alot of love, care and attention to give these babies a chance to grow big, healthy and happy. Fortunately the care staff team are doing a great job. But they can’t do it alone. On average it costs 1500USD per year to take care of each chimpanzee and even more for babies due to extra care needed. And so many babies are a lot of mouths to feed! Please consider donating at www.tacugama.com/donate or become a Chimp Guardian for only 60USD per year! www.tacugama.com/adopt
The orphans will be very thankful. ♥

We are all hugs here at Tacugama! ♥
Chimpanzees often embrace to provide a sense of comfort to one another and to support social bonds. They are a highly social species and need socialisation with each other in order to be healthy and happy! Pictured below hugging is Fifo (left) and Ceasar.

WHEN TOMMY ARRIVED IN 2010 he had had a pellet from poachers gone through his arm the day his mother and group were murdered. Amputation was said to be the only solution to save his right arm ravaged by osteomyelitis… I refused and decided to give him all the Love and needed care. Today, Tommy’s arm is no longer sick and he is a chimp like any other chimps. Glad my obstination paid off!!

In this case, it is an arm and a lifetime that have been saved! ♥

Our countdown continues… Here is another way we use water at J.A.C.K. and why we need your help to install a water system at the sanctuary!

Our devoted team at J.A.C.K. need access to water for their own hydration and hygiene! Working with the chimps is hot and hard work, and they need water to drink and to wash their uniforms each day.

Help us to help them by tagging a friend and donating now https://bit.ly/2MlW9LY!

Giving day for Apes! ♥


Please help us to install our own water system at our sanctuary for orphaned chimpanzees in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC)!

Infrastructure is poor in the DRC and on some days, nothing comes out the tap, placing an enormous strain on our daily efforts.

Our goal is to raise $10,000 by Tuesday, 15th October 2019 so that this finally becomes a problem of the past.

Interested? Join us on our Giving Day for Apes page:

Any support represents the world to these orphaned chimpanzees.
Thank you for them! ♥
