Meet Rambo, one of our newest rescue !
Rambo, approximately 15 years old is one of the CCC latest rescue.
He was confiscated with 3 other chimps from an illegal zoo in Kindia, Guinea. The shut down of that zoo led to the arrest of a few traffickers.
You can see Rambo when he arrived at the CCC and was transfered to his new quarantine home, built thanks to Olsen Animal Trust.
He won’t be alone since next door are living his 3 other companions of misfortune, a 5 year old female and two young males.
He is stressed and wondering what is going on.
Despite all, he is a loving and sweet boy.
We are giving him and the other rescues 24 hours care. The cost is high and we need you.
They went through so much before reaching the CCC. Let’s not forget the refugees of the forest.
The French support organization, Projet Primates France, has created a crowdfunding campaign to raise funds to care for these chimps.
You can read their stories and make a donation via this link:

Thanks to the Schutz Engel Trust, via our long time supporter The Tusk Trust, we’ve received a generous donation in memory of Andy Stallman. Thank you to Mr. Stallman and his family who wished to do good after his passing. We are very grateful and we hope that knowing that his legacy will do a lot of good for chimpanzees in Guinea, will ease their pain.
2017 is starting well.
We’ve just been informed that the Columbus Zoo Fund for Conservation has granted our funding request.
Thank you very much to Columbus Zoo for your wonderful support.
After Black Friday, Cyber Monday, it’s giving back time with #GivingTuesday.
N’dama is one of the chimpanzees from the CCC you can sponsor her here under the “help us” section.
We are saving lives like N’dama thanks to you. Be their “chimpions”
Tomorrow we are counting on you. There are many chimps to choose from.
With any sponsorship you’ll get a personalized certificate, a biography of your favorite chimpanzees and an official letter of thanks. Any donation to the CCC via Project Primate, Inc. is tax exempt.
We hope you had a chilling Sunday and a great Thanksgiving week-end.
Toto has reached his new home last Sunday. Dondo, a research student, has traveled with him to ease his transition to his new surroundings but Toto has already made friends with two of our experienced keepers, Faya and Sekou. Toto has lost his mom due to a snake bite in Fongoli Forest in Senegal when he was only a month and half old. He is in good health and good spirit. He loves grooming: to groom and to be groomed. He’s a quick learner and we have no doubt that he’ll settle well at the CCC. Thanks to Friends of Animals Neighbor Ape and Janis Carter for caring for him and funding his transfer to the CCC. Toto will spend his quarantine away from the other chimps but will have Dondo and the CCC keepers to keep him entertained. You can sponsor Toto for as little as $5/month on our site http://www.projetprimates.com/help-us/ so don’t hesitate!
One of our chimp is ready for the trick and treat evening.
Unfortunately we don’t know whom it is…

Noel, 4 years old, has been busy, very busy since the integration between his group (big babies) and the Nursery group, has started. He is in love with Sanka, 8 years old, one of the “older” girls. Although Noel is too young to be fertile, he is practicing his technique a lot and Sanka is happy to oblige (look at the size difference). The other males (older boys) have been understanding with him but their patience is running low. Time for Noel to hide when he wants some intimate time with Sanka.
Have a good week from Hakim (and all of us)
