Fauna Foundation would like to thank LUSH for their generous grant through the Lush Charitable Giving Program that supports organizations primarily throughout North America. With this, Fauna is a Charity Pot Partner and received a grant for $25,000 to complete the outdoor skywalk and finish a solarium, a sunny inside space for the Chimphouse. With every purchase of a Lush Charity Pot Hand and Body Lotion, LUSH donates 100% of the price (minus the taxes) to small grassroots organizations working in the areas of environmental conservation, animal welfare and human rights. We are so pleased that they have included Fauna in their list of supported organizations.
There will be a Lush Awareness event for Fauna Foundation at the Montreal Eaton Center on July 9th from Noon till 4pm. Fauna caregivers will be on hand to answer your questions and speak about Fauna’s mission.
Thank you LUSH!
Thanks to Montreal company Dose, the chimpanzees at Fauna are enjoying delicious, cold-pressed organic juices! Dose juices are an excellent food source loaded with nutrients. Because they are cold-pressed they retain their nutritional value. The chimpanzees are loving them and they are part of the balanced diet served each day in the Chimphouse.
Grâce à l’entreprise montréalaise Dose, les chimpanzés de Fauna savourent de délicieux jus biologiques pressés à froid! Les jus Dose sont une excellente source de nutriments. La pression à froid permet de conserver la valeur nutritive des ingrédients. Ces jus font partie du menu équilibré servi tous les jours aux chimpanzés, et ceux-ci en raffolent! (more…)
Fauna Foundation is very concerned about an event taking place as part of Montreal 375th anniversary festivities. From August 24th -27th 2017, the city of Montreal, along with the Society for the Celebrations of Montréal’s 375th Anniversary are holding a rodeo event, called Nomadfest Urban Rodeo, in the Old Port of Montreal. Unfortunately, this Montreal rodeo will subject animals to stress, injury and even the risk of death for the sole purpose of entertainment. This is not a tradition that has ever represented the history of Montreal, nor is it representative of the values of its citizens. (more…)
Today marked the death of John Glenn. Born on July 18th, 1921, he went on to become a Marine pilot and in 1959 was selected for the Mercury astronaut training program. In 1962 he was the first American man to orbit the earth, circling it 3 times. He famously commented: “I don’t know what you can say about a day when you see four beautiful sunsets…. This is a little unusual, I think.” In 1998, at the age of 77, he made his second trip into space onboard the Space Shuttle, helping NASA learn what effects space had on older people. John Glenn lived a long and full life and passed away on December 8th, at the age of 95. (more…)
