Gaia was the first orphan to arrive after I started following Liberia Chimpanzee Rescue & Protection, tiny & toothless, she was also the youngest orphan to come into LCRP care ~ her fate was uncertain, I fell in love with this little bundle and it’s totally fitting that she is the first orphan up for adoption this March
We have seen her first steps
We have seen her toothles grin turn into a cheeky toothy smile
We have seen her become a chimp
She even made the Dodo
Christmas 2019 my son adopted her for my Christmas present & FINALLY I got to do my Jump For Gaia skydivelast year raising £1000
You can view my skydive video in our group ~ dated 6th June 2021
Now YOU can experience the joy of Gaia ~ adopt her today & fall in love with her just the way I did !!

There are nearly EIGHTY orphans at LCRP, each one has witnessed the murder of their parents & extended family for both bushmeat & in order to steal the babies, as many as eight chimps may be murdered to steal one baby. They come in in all kinds of conditions, usually very ill, puffy eyes through dehydration & poor diet, always traumatised & often dead behind the eyes. The work LCRP do is INCREDIBLE, Jimmy Desmond is a vet who gets to work immediately to fix the physical, Jenny Desmond gets to work on fixing the mental & emmotional ~ because they experience the same feelings as us, they have nightmares too!! Then the team at LCRP come together to nuture & provide. Before the Desmonds arrived in Liberia there were NO conviscations of chimps even though it is illegal to be in possesion of one, there was nowhere to place them so they didn’t bother to apply the law, NOW ~ the Desmonds have created that place as work continues on the new purpose built sanctuary, they have built relationships with locals, law enforcement & government, this has resulted in all these orphans arriving on the door step and most importantly CONVICTIONS have started to happen, not everytime but it’s becoming more regular, sending out the message that this vile trade in bushmeat & orphans will no longer be tollerated, but this comes at a cost, so PLEASE adopt a chimp in March for yourself, for a gift, for Mothers Day ~ help to feed all these little tummies & to continue work on the new sanctuary.
