Ya iba siendo hora de tener un lugar propio donde tener recopilados algunos de mis trabajos favoritos.
This story is incredibly sad. Mama was stolen from the wild to be put in a zoo for the rest of her life. Please #boycott#zoos and animal entertainment venues. It's a life of suffering and monotony for the rest of their lives.
Please read Mama's story ♥️
Mama, a former matriarch of a colony of chimps at Royal Burgers Zoo in Holland, was on her last days when she was paid a visit from her former care taker.
The 59-year-old ape, who had been unresponsive and curled up in a ball, reacted with pure joy after recognizing her friend
She appeared to smile and screech with happiness as she touches his face, holds the back of his neck and brings his head down to hers.
Sadly, she passed away just a week after the emotional visit in April last year.
Mama was born in the wild back in 1957 and was the oldest chimp at the zoo at the time of her death.
This is Sanaa. Heis a subadultmale in acurrent phase of copying the "cool kids". He can get quite rough with others but deep down he is a thinker. He is also very photogenic compared to some of his peers!
Chimpanzee boy Niini was groomed by his mother. He is six years old, but he is still a child in front of his mother. It was a wonderful sight.🥰🥰

That face! Stirlene is a fascinating and complex former research chimpanzee. He’s a member of Bo’s and Latricia’s combined social group and is a powerful male with a soft side too. Before the groups were combined, he used to sit outside the other villas and watch the female chimps inside. Now he’s figuring out the relationships in his mixed-sex group of 15.

This is the worst condition we’ve received any chimpanzee in. Despite the anger and frustration our team is feeling, we’d like to share something with you. Please take 5 mins out and read what we have to say:
Why is Mubaki here with us today?
It’s because of bushmeat trade. It refers to the illegal hunting of wildlife for meat and income, as many rural communities depend on it for subsistence. But before we go about hating the people who eat wild animals, please let’s think for a moment. None of us who have the luxury of a smartphone, or Instagram, or something as basic as having 3 meals a day, understand what it’s like to face dire hunger, or worse, the desperate need to feed our kids. While it is one of the biggest threat to chimp population today, habitat loss over the years has also been the crucial to their decline.
Because of its rich resources, Africa has been exploited by the “first world” since the beginning of time. For eg - while the world is trading in billions from the gold/copper industry, the miners working in Africa are left with lesser than nothing.
The point we’re trying to make-
Everything is interconnected. Every action of ours may have a direct impact on a place or its people we don’t even know exists! Every small choice we make matters.
What do we ask of you today?
👉🏼We ask of you to be more aware, and spread this awareness among your friends and family.
👉🏼We ask you to question the impact our lifestyle has on the natural world, and the world at large.
👉🏼Lastly, we ask you to make small alterations in your lifestyle, because it always start small - get that plastic out of your life, recycle that iPhone, don’t buy that extra pair of jeans if you don’t need it, don’t buy that gold only because you want it, replace the long hot showers with sweet buckets baths, and so on and so forth
Even if you adopt just one new sustainable habit every month, you’re directly saving a chimpanzee. You’re directly saving our forests. You’re directly saving our only planet 🌎 🙏🏼
A young chimp lucky enough to drink mothers milk and not being bottle raised by humans, despite the fact that he is at the Chimfunshi Wildlife Orphanage in the north of Zambia. It is one of the World’s largest and oldest shelters for chimpanzees. Chimfunshi started as a family-run wildlife orphanage, and today Chimfunshi is managed by a board of trustees to ensure the long-term sustainability of the sanctuary. Chimfunshi was founded in 1983 when a game ranger brought a badly wounded infant chimpanzee to the cattle ranch of David and Sheila Siddle. Today, the sanctuary is home to about 120 chimpanzees confiscated from circuses, from poachers, or found on street markets where they were to be sold or discovered by customs. Chimfunshi is located in a huge bush and meadow landscape right by the Kafue River in North-Western Zambia, 70 kilometres from the nearest town of Chingola. Please visit their website if you want to get involved. #chimfunshi#chimfunshiwildlifeorphanage#chimpanzee#chimpanzeesanctuary#stoptheillegalwildlifetrade#stoppoaching#chimpanzeeorphans#newbeginnings#wildliferescue#wildliferehabilitation#zambia#copperbeltzambia#sambia#kafueriver
Happy #greatapesgivingday ! Every single day, so many of you in our audience ask “How can I help?” On this day, organizations like ours are asking you directly for help - there are thousands of great apes in dire need of care. The chimpanzees at our Tchimpounga sanctuary have faced the worst conditions you can imagine, torn from their mothers arms, many dramatically injured, psychologically traumatized. At Tchimpounga they are given a second chance to feel love, heal, and live in integrated groups with other rescued chimpanzees. Many of you have seen the power of this, especially in stories like that of Wounda - the rescued Tchimpounga chimpanzee who embraced Dr. Goodall, recognizing her kindness and that of her salvation and head of the sanctuary Dr. Rebeca Atencia. This is essential work, thousands of great apes like Wounda are stolen from the wild every year for the illegal pet or bushmeat trade. But creating and maintaining individual care plans and support for these chimpanzees is costly. With your support, you will be giving them food, medical supplies, facilities, and love. Please consider donating today ( or donate in honor of someone as a gift!) link in bio. Chimpanzees are our closest living relatives - emotionally complex and full of life - they’re counting on you to stand up for them when they cannot stand up for themselves. | #janegoodall#drjanegoodall#drgoodall#chimpanzees#chimpanzee#chimps#greatapes#conservation#chimpwelfare#animalwelfare#animalsanctuary#wildlifesanctuary#protectwildlife#animals#animallove#animallovers#give#hope
🐵Why love a chimpanzee?🐵
Love their stubbornness and their incredible strength.
Love the way they poke their curiosity into life and never let it get the better of them.
Love the tenderness and empathy beneath their wild tempers; and especially love them because they completely refuse to apologize for who they are.🐾 #chimpanzee#chimp#criticallyendangered#zwfmiami#zwf#wildchild
