Here is an update from the team about Suzie, our recent rescue as promised. Suzie has been introduced to all the members of the Bilinga group. She especially enjoys spending time with Tom and being groomed by him. Suzie doesn't know how to groom because of her lack of socialization. As you can imagine, this is a major issue, since may be difficult for her to bond with the others. We are hoping with time that this will change. She is coping slowly with the presence of the rest of the group. This is not surprising, since she is older and has been living alone for many years. Recent news is that she is now spending time with the other females in the group.

Suzie loves eating lettuce and cucumber and basking in the sun in her favorite corner hammock. Her caregivers are collecting feces samples every day so that they can monitor stress (cortisol) levels due to the associations, which will be analyzed in a study together with the faculty of Veterinary of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. It will be very interesting to see how her stress levels change over time. Suzie is also getting accustomed to being weighed by her caregivers. This provides a further measure of her health and well-being. They are conducting associations every day, so it is only a matter of time before she is accepted into the group.

Many thanks for supporting our work.

Dear Friend,

Many thanks for your generosity in supporting the Mona Foundation Sanctuary in Spain. We recently rescued Suzie, a 40-year-old chimpanzee who was kept in a private home alone for many years. It has taken 11 years of negotiations with Suzie’s owners to convince them that the best place for her is to live with other chimpanzees at the MONA Sanctuary in Spain. We are very pleased that Suzie was rescued and relocated to the sanctuary in September. She is settling in well and she is being introduced to her new family slowly. She gets along very well with Tom, another chimpanzee resident. Thanks to your generosity and support, we can provide Suzie with the care and support that she needs. 

We will continue to keep you updated on Suzie's progress.

Warmest wishes,

Lorraine

Dear Friend,

We would like to start by thanking you for your generosity in supporting the Mona Foundation Sanctuary during one of our most challenging times. Thanks to your generosity and support, we can continue to provide the highest level of care to our wonderful primates. Each chimpanzee eats a few kilos of fruit and vegetables per day and Tom and Africa, and their family adore a varied diet of fruit vegetables and nuts every day. We thank you for supporting us through these challenging times.


We will continue to keep you updated and inform you of our new campaigns.

Warmest wishes,

Lorraine

Dear Friend,

We would like to start by thanking you for your generosity in supporting the Mona Foundation during one of our most challenging times. Thanks to your generosity and support, we are able to continue to provide the highest level of care to our wonderful primates. As you can imagine primates need to have a rich, varied and balanced diet every day. The great news is that we have cautiously opened our doors to a limited number of guided tours under strict COVID guidelines, so we are hopeful for this year. 

We will continue to keep you updated and inform you of our new campaigns.

Warmest wishes,

Lorraine
