At last here are photos of Léonie and N’Dama integration ! It started some weeks ago and it’s now over.

The welder will come next week to add a 5th cage so the girls could have their nap and sleep at night with their group. For the moment, they have to go back to their room. The nursery is fitted with…

Léonie and N’Dama’s preparation for their integration in the nursery group (Tya, Tango, Labé, Sam and Bailo) is still going on. They are going every day in some forest spots with bigger trees so they can get used to climb higher.

Therefore it is crucial the two girls gain the…

N’Dama and Leonie, sisters forever!

Léonie and N’Dama are doing very well! They spend their day out in the forest with their surrogate mother and they sleep together at night. N’Dama’s presence helps Léonie a lot to develop her ecological and social skills: they are like 2 sisters now, the best friends!

Some news of the 3 babies

Some news of the 3 babies

Our babies group, Tya, Tango and Labé, is affected by a very bad cold. Tya was very sick but she is doing better today, but now it’s Tango who is not feeling well at all. All the team is very careful to provide them with all the necessary treatments as respiratory diseases can be deadly to chimpanzees, especially when they are young. We send very positives thoughts to our little ones!
