Chimpanzee Habitat for Conservation and Education continues!

The fence construction is continuing, with the mesh up on over half the fence today! We are moving forward, which is a relief, but still have some way to go. If you would like to contribute to the fence appeal, 100% of the funds donated through the blog go directly to the fence construction! Watch this space for more updates!

Welcome Bernard!

Bernard arrived on the 8th of May at the CRPL. She was the pet of Congolese military; however the commanding officer surrendered her into the care of the Congolese conservation authority (ICCN). He then accompanied the ICCN to the sanctuary to see where the young Owl-faced monkey would live. Bernard was in good health on arrival and will spend one month in quarantine before we integrate her into a group with other monkeys.

We now have a total of 64 monkeys! Space is very limited, but we give them the best food and health care we possibly can. We are working toward improvements in housing for all animals of the CRPL!
