Adopt a Chimp
| Fifteen for 15
Here at Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary we really need your help to support our chimps and staff every day. It costs over US$1,000 each year just to take care of one chimpanzee in the sanctuary and we now have one hundred. We do our best to raise some money locally but Sierra Leone is a very poor country and without overseas support we cannot make ends meet.
You can help us by making a one-off payment, adopting one of our chimpanzees and in 2010, which marks our 15th anniversary, helping to promote our Fifteen for 15 campaign. Click on the links above for more information on each of these options. We use Paypal to ensure your donations are secure – you don’t need to open a Paypal account to donate if you use your credit or debit card. Apart from the Paypal administration charge, ALL of your donation goes directly towards the sanctuary running costs.
Thank you for your support - it really makes a difference.
Fifteen for 15 is our special 15th Anniversary campaign; can you find 15 people who can donate $15? for more information see Fifteen for 15.
If you would like to visit Tacugama, we run two guided tours a day at 10:30am and 4:00pm, 7 days a week by appointment. The entrance fee is Le 40,000 & Le 15,000 for children. The fee for indigenous Sierra Leoneans is Le 10,000 for adults and Le 5,000 for children. Please call us first to make an appointment so we know you are coming. The sanctuary is on the mountain road, keep going past IMATT and through Regent and Bathurst villages. It is then signposted from the main road.
If you are looking to stay a short while out of the heat and noise of Freetown then the eco-lodges are the ideal place to stay.
