Wild chimpanzees spend about 6 hours per day eating and looking for food.
Twice a week, we shop for our daily supplies from the local market in Waterloo and from the villagers around the sanctuary thus supporting local businesses and vendors. Tacugama also provides short-term and long-term work for many in the local community.
For safety reasons, we check the electrical fences every morning before letting the chimpanzees into their enclosures.
