Caroline and Dr. Sheri Speede

Publié le 30 Décembre 2014

On a hot day in January 2000, three-year-old Caroline and Dr. Sheri Speede waited in the town of Kribi, Cameroon for traveling papers from the Ministry of Forestry and Wildlife. It was about an hour after Sheri helped authorities confiscate Caroline from a resort hotel, where she was caged as a miserable little tourist attraction. When she took her from that tiny prison, they became fast friends, and after 15 years they still are!

But today, Caroline is a beautiful young adult, and the friends who are most important in her world are chimpanzees. Thanks to so many caring contributors like you, she has grown up among other rescued orphans in the lush natural habitat of Sanaga-Yong Chimpanzee Rescue Center.

This month we’ve rescued two new infants whose families were slaughtered tragically by poachers. While we can never replace what they’ve lost, with your help we can give them a 2nd chance to grow up and find happiness with friends.

By providing a home for rescued orphans, IDA-Africa enables Cameroon authorities to enforce laws against trafficking. We also provide essential information from the field and vital technical assistance.

IDA-Africa’s important work for chimpanzees is only possible with the participation of our human friends around the world. As 2014 comes to a close, please send an end of year gift for Caroline and all the amazing, resilient chimpanzees of Sanaga-Yong Rescue Center. Your compassion makes all the difference! You can donate on line at www.ida-africa.org.Thank you!

From all of us at IDA-Africa we wish you the very best for 2015!
