Latest days of the campaign “Building chimps happiness”

//Latest days of the campaign “Building chimps happiness”

New structures, new enrichments… Thanks to the generosity of many people we have been able to make new improvements at our facilities that for sure are going to have a very positive effect on the welfare of our rescued primates. Here’s the detail of what things we have done with your donations.

Last summer we launched a campaign to get extra money to be spent on new and exciting projects.

Well, thanks to the kind donations of many people we have achieved 707€ through the online campaign pages. But we want to give a special thanks to Mr. Milan, Ms. Anita and Sandra Haluche Starostik from the Primates Sanctuary Curitiba, Paraná (Brazil) for the donation of 2,500€  to make the improvement of our facilities a reality.

The details for all these improvements are:

– A new tunnel has been built to connect two enclosures for the macaques so they have more room available: total cost: 945€ (so the 707€ will be good to cover part of the expenses)

– Paint for the chimps building walls: the company Artic, through the Realdreams Foundation , has made a donation of 135 L of professional paint!

– We have installed bigger aluminum windows with a better thermal isolation for the chimps building: cost 600€

– New environmental enrichment items:  the adoptees Fernanda Bacigaluppi and Sergio have made a donation of material (huge plastic pipes, concrete blocks and other fun elements) and have paid the transportation to the sanctuary. Many thanks!

– Material to build new towers and connexions between structures outside at the chimps’ enclosures: here the 2.500€ become important, since soon will turn into new towers for the chimps

We will keep the on-line campaign a few more days, just in case some of you would like to help us cover the cost of the new windows and tunnel.

So take note:

Thanks you so much for your generosity that allows us to keep an excellent quality of life for these rescued primates that deserve a second chance.
