Amazing news! The newest enclosure in Cikananga is one we hoped to realise already a very long time. As many young primates become victim of illegal trade, they are rescued into our care. But as these young primates need care around the clock, we had no other option than to put them in sub optimal enclosures inside the clinic, occupying the little room we have. Luckily with a generous donation we have been able to built a specifically designed enclosure right next to our clinic so the young and vulnerable primates can have both around the clock care as well a proper spacious enclosure where they can learn how to climb in an very closed of environment to limited the interaction with our staff, which helps them to stay wild and act upon their instincts. Last week gibbon Mowgli was placed inside the enclosure and he seems very pleased! We would like to thank Stichting Nijdier for their great help realising this enclosure, it’s wonderful!
