Everyone at JGI UK would like to offer up a huge thank you to Nick Fell, who tirelessly fundraised for JGI in 2015.  Nick fractured his spine in 2014 in a snowboarding accident and as part of his return to fitness decided to enter three cycling events.  Nick raised over £800 for the chimpanzees at Tchimpounga sanctuary in Congo, which is amazing. 

Well done Nick and one again, thank you.

Help us tell Time Magazine that they should list Jane Goodall among their top 100 most influential people.

The JGI UK Board has sent £5,000 to help the team at the Tacugama Sanctuary in Sierra Leone manage the severe impact of Ebola on their operations. Do please spread the word and support this appeal. Primates are impacted by Ebola both directly and through the social impact on those managing sanctuaries/reserves. Saving human lives in this medical and societal disaster is critically important; helping maintain healthy and viable chimpanzee populations is also so.
