Adopt a Chimpanzee
The chimpanzees at Sweetwaters can never be reintroduced to the wild and therefore need ongoing support. It costs us $3,000 a year to look after one chimpanzee! By adopting one of the following chimpanzees for a year, you will help us to give it the life it deserves. You will also help us to secure the future of all the orphans cared for at the Sanctuary.
Poco spent the first nine years of his life in a small cage suspended above a workshop, where he was placed to attract potential customers.
- MWANZO and AJABU
Mwanzo, which means "first" in Kiswahili, was the first chimpanzee to be born in the Sanctuary. Her daughter Ajabu, which means "surprise", came as a surprise to all.
Tess was found for sale in a market place looking miserable and malnourished.
George was found bundled in barbed wire.
Naika was abandoned by a travelling circus. Strong and determined, she is now the 3rd ranking female in her group.
