From Tony Smith, President of the Fauna Sanctuary and Advisory Board member of  Fauna Foundation.
Dear friends and supporters of the Fauna family of chimpanzees.
Some of you may be aware that Miss Pepper has been sick for some time now and that over the past week her health has considerably deteriorated. Gloria has asked me to let you all know of Pepper’s condition and to provide you with a little update.
During the past week her condition has changed, as well as her routine. She is sleeping a lot more now and is still getting up for food and drinks. Unfortunately, she has become very weak and has been experiencing more discomfort. 
She appreciates all the help everyone is giving, making her nice clean beds and serving her favourite foods. She is still changing places to have her naps, but prefers her bed up in the outside mezzanine area.
Her best girlfriend, Sue Ellen, comes to visit and groom her on occasion. 
Gloria, close family, all care-givers and friends have been constantly by her side making her as comfortable as possible and ensuring that she is never alone. 
To her great delight Pepper has had many visitors around the clock, all familiar faces to her, and she perks up each time one appears.
Pepper appears to be in no pain, as tough as she is, but is very tired now.
On behalf of Gloria and all the Fauna family and staff, sincere thanks to all of you who have supported and visited Pepper over the past weeks, some from a great distance.
She is loved by many and we will keep you updated.
