We are pleased to announce the support of the Brigitte Bardot Foundation which has been helping our sanctuary since 2009.

This 2016 aid will help us develop the open air playground of the Nursery II Project. This means that the youngsters of our Nursery group will soon be offered a new Jungle Gym and a small pond...

We are extremely delighted since things have been so tough here recently and a great news like this brightens our days!!

Again, many thanks to the Brigitte Bardot Foundation for its trust and wish to offer our orphans the best living conditions!

Today, Franck is at the UN Complex of Nairobi where he is among the PASA delagates attending a meeting organised by PEGAS & GRASP. Our NGO has been a clue to stop ape trafficking throughout South DRC : 9 yea...

Our sanctuary is a DRC NGO living on donations only and, thanks to the kindness of its donors and sponsors, J.A.C.K. can make huge steps forward to increase the well fare of its boarders and of its team.

Today, we want to speak about 'magic'!

Yes, we didn't have power nor a generator at J.A.C.K.: our sanctuary has been living in the dark for the last 8 years using solar energy  for the electrical fences all around the chimps playgrounds....
