Jackson was born in 2015 and was confiscated in April 2017 from a village near Freetown. He was originally caught in Kenema district and was under the care of 30 kids. Weak and underweight, Jackson has made a fast recovery after arriving at the sanctuary and became a cheerful chimp. At the beginning of 2021, following health complications, he had to be put back into quarantine but after a few months, he then joined the large babies group in their brand new enclosure! In 2023, he has been reunited with his best friend Jackie in AJ's group and is happier than ever.
