White-tufted-ear marmoset Callithrix jacchus
Animals in our sanctuary
Wickie was brought in together with Mumpy by Stichting AAP. He was found on a parking lot in the Hanover area, clearly dumped. Because of this, his history could not be retrieved.
Mumpy was handed over by his owner after the death of the mother of the animal to a rescue center in Sachsenhagen, Germany. There he was merged with Wickie.
Before Sinbad and his buddy Saphire came to Stichting AAP, their lives didn't look very bright. Sinbad was kept as a pet by a German private individual, together with a number of other monkeys. When the owner finally realized that they were not suitable pets, he asked for the help of the German animal protection. But for one of the animals his insight came too late, this monkey died of the consequences of wrong food. Fortunately the story of Sinbad and Saphire ended differently! They now get a hopeful new home in De Zonnegloed in a new spacious and adapted stay. Surrounded with the attention and care they deserve after a life of misery.
Lusy comes from Spain and was seized by the authorities there from a private owner. Fortunately, she could be taken in immediately by Primadomus, Spain, and was accommodated about half a year later at Stichting AAP, the Netherlands. Meanwhile, here at De Zonnegloed a white-tufted-ear marmoset had died and a male was sitting alone. After the successful reunion of our male and Lusy, they got a permanent home here and can enjoy a new life together.
