Our chimps and gorillas on the move!

The Ape Action Africa team is proud to have completed key parts of a complex re-housing project this month. It is the largest ever undertaken at Mefou Sanctuary involving more than 50 animals, and aims to ease a housing crisis brought about by an influx of new arrivals and improve conditions for many of our current residents.


So far our team has moved 11 sub-adult gorillas and 3 adult chimps Billie Jean, Toby & Dixon, followed by 15 young chimps from the nursery. The moves were carried out with impressive efficiency by our vet team who sedated, blood tested, weighed and checked each animal, transporting them carefully to their new homes.


You can read more about the moves and the exciting introductions that are underway in Cameroon in the September article on our news page and watch the first stages of the move on our YouTube channel.
