Bui’s rescue is one with a valuable story, he was rescued by a Peace Corp volunteer named Bui, sadly this rescuer paid for Bui in order to get him to safety, whilst this sounds an amazing thing to do, it is the wrong thing to do, when you pay a trafficker for ‘goods’ you are sending them directly out to aquire more goods, if you are ever in a position where you come across a wild animal for sale PLEASE report it to the local authorities, they will deal with it, paying for an animal in order to save it is sadly the wrong thing to do.
Bui’s first night at LCRP.
Bui arrived very ill & skinny, he had shrapnel lodged in various parts of his body, he was understandably shy & very traumatised, he took a little longer than some of the others to feel secure.
But when he did start to feel secure he became boisterous, made friends easily & now spends his days in the forest ~ he loves to swing
Now YOU can experience the joy of Bui ~ adopt this swinging star today !!

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.
