Monkey in a bird cage
At the market in Tanger I found this little monkey in a bird cage after somebody told me about it. It was for sale. Unfortunately this is still very common in Morocco and not much is being done about it. This little monkey has been confiscated after I warned the authorities and has been moved to Rabat Zoo where he can live his life in a larger cage with other monkeys. But needless to say, this monkey should have stayed in the forest where it belongs!
Finished flyer project
The last 3 weeks we have handing out flyers in Tanger and we have distributed 50.000 flyers including Algeciras. About 2250 a day! The project did not always go smoothly, we had some problems with the customs, autorities and authorisation to be able to work in the ports, but in the end we can say it was a great success! The people who received flyers weren very positive and found the flyer very informative. We even made the local paper and a lot of people in the neighbourhood of the port in Tanger now are informed of our objectives. Many thanks to my team consisting of Hajar, Sana, Sarah, Ismael, Mohammed 2x and Omar. We worked very hard in the heat, car fumes and sometimes very unpleasant situations with the authroities!
