December 2011 – Wishing you all a happy and successful New Year!

The holidays have brought good news for the scouts in Thuma Forest Reserve. We received three donations for the Sponsor-a-Scout program. This will secure the job of three of the dedicated scouts for another year. Thank you all so much, Claudia, Urs and Kiyoko.

In Vietnam we were able to help the Forest Protection Department confiscating another macaque, who was kept in a small cage in a private house. We hope to be able to release him back into the wild soon. Thank you Asli for your donation to help with this.
