After some days of heavy rain at last the sun shines again in Lwiro! This morning was the time to have a sun bath and Walikale enjoyed the outdoors with his keeper. He is doing pretty well and he loves having naps.

Friends of LWIRO Australia is one of the Management Advisory Groups of the CRPL – raising funds for operational costs and providing advise and technical support! See below the great efforts they go to too support the CRPL!
Friends of LWIRO Australia committee members and supporters ran the gruelling 14km from
The team looked great wearing the new Friends of LWIRO Australia t-shirts while they joined 85 000 other runners to conquer heart break hill, the long stretches to the beach and the rain.
Lou, Wally, Brent, Lou, Katie, Rochelle, Ryan, Hayley, Brownie, Simon and Indhi (the youngest runner at just 6 years old!) all had a great time. Well done team! Thanks for your support for CRPL!

The CRPL would like to thank the Fondation Brigitte Bardot for their generous grant to construct a new facility for our baboon residents. Your help is so appreciated!
The addition of this new facility to the CRPL will change the lives of these animals by giving them a larger space which will be both mentally and physically more stimulating than their current cages.
We will keep you all posted on the construction of the facility on the blog as it happens.

Walikale has been at the CRPL for almost a month now. Before arriving, his family group were attacked by poachers. Some of the chimpanzees would have been killed for meat, while Walikale was probably taken alive to sell as a pet. However, the Congolese government conservation authority (ICCN) intercepted Walikale and bought him to the CRPL for rehabilitation and care.
We believe Walikale is around 4-5 months old as he is very small and has under developed motor skills. He is however doing very well, eating lots of different foods and playing and laughing continuously through the day. Being a very small baby, Walikale also takes a few naps!

With thanks to the International Primate Protection League and the Arcus Foundation we were able to start the new faze of our ‘Chimpanzee Habitat for Conservation and Education’ yesterday! The money they have granted us was used to purchase a part of the metallic overhang and will be used for some general running costs for the centre and also a military education program! Once again we are so grateful for the support of IPPL and the Arcus foundation! And we are so excited to be continuing with the forest enclosure!
