Meet Dengdeng, the spot-nosed guenon who recently arrived at PASA member Ape Action Africa after being rescued by our other PASA member Sanaga-Yong Chimpanzee Rescue. 

Dengdeng completed his quarantine and has been introduced to the young guenon group. Integration is going smoothly and he has already made friends. 

Dengdeng was rescued thanks to Sanaga-Yong Chimpanzee Rescue’s education program. During one of the classes about primate conservation, one of the local children reported that a monkey was tied up behind a building. 

This is a testament to the amazing work of these two organizations.

PASA member Sanaga-Yong Chimpanzee Rescue celebrates 20 years for 20 days by featuring highlights from over the years. DAY 7: Dorothy was orphaned after a poacher killed her mother, and she was sold as a pet to a family that owned a hotel and amusement park. For most of the 40 years she was with them, she was tethered to the ground by a heavy chain around her neck. Visitors taunted her, delighting whenever she drank beer and smoked cigarettes. 

In May 2000, Sanaga-Yong Chimpanzee Rescue worked with Cameroon’s Ministry of the Environment and Forestry to rescue Dorothy and nine other primates.

Dorothy struggled to fit in socially with groups of adult chimps. Her life began to improve when she was introduced to rescued juveniles, and adopted four-year-old Bouboule as her son. She had never had a chance to be a mother, and it seemed that she wanted a child as much as Bouboule wanted a mother. They were inseparable. 

Being a mother gave Dorothy confidence and status, and she became a beloved member of the social group of 26 members. In 2008, Dorothy died of heart failure and the bottom photo here shows grieving members of her group just before her burial. This photo was printed in National Geographic and went viral. 

Dorothy helped people around the world understand that humans are not the only species with the capacity to love and grieve.

RIP sweet girl.😢😢♥️♥️

Thank you thank you thank you! God bless each and every one of you for all that you do for them 🙏💗🤗

Thank you all for everything you do for each of them❤️

Just over a week ago a 3 year old chimpanzee called Jean arrived at Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary
 
It is always very sad to for a sanctuary to receive a new chimp, knowing that they should be living in the wild, but is even more sad when they come like Jean: full of wounds and scars, malnourished and so traumatized. 💔

Tacugamas vet team and surrogate mothers are working very hard to get Jean physically and mentally recovered. 

You can help Tacugama care with Jeans care by clicking this link http://www.pasaprimates.org/donate-to-tacugama 
Thank you ❤️
