Jubilee Competition

Can you imagine being in the same job for 60 years.  My person once managed 12 years in the same job and that was enough for her and that is only one fifth of the length of time our Queen has been in her job and she was training for it for years before that.  Well it doesn't matter what you think about royalty it is impressive.  So, in Britain and many other countries there will be great celebrations this year.  Well baboons never miss out on a celebration whatever it is about.  So the Diamond Jubilee is a good excuse for a competition.

We are very lucky because there will be four prizes this time.  Our dear friend @BlindMaximus has donated a second monkey donation prize so two pals will get the opportunity to adopt a monkey or an owl.

We also have the priviledge of launching the possibility of a modelling career for one of our most stylish anipals @OllyTed

The Prizes

  1. Two chances to adopted a primate or owl from the Owl and Monkey haven near my home on the island http://www.owlandmonkeyhaven.co.uk/.  I will promise to visit your monkey or owl and get pictures.
  2. A T-shirt of the colour of your choice from Kaninchenretterin to help our dear friend Miriam with the work she does to rescue rabbits http://www.kaninchenrettung.de/.  T-shirts come in all sizes from Teddy size to adult, you can see how stylish it is if you look at our friend Olly modelling his prize from the last competition.  If you feel that T-shirts are not for you, you can choose a mug from the sanctuary website instead.

3.   An amazing baboon mystery prizes that will really surprise you.
               
There are three ways to enter this competition.
  1. Leave a comment on this blog saying that you wish to enter.
  2. Send me a DM to @Kolo_Martin on Twitter. If you find I do not follow you please send me a message so you can DM me.
  3. For my friends on Can Be Social, if you are not on Twitter please leave a message on my CBS wall.
I don't ask my dear anipals to do anything to enter the competition as I could never judge between their entries. Please enter just be sending me a message in one of the ways listed above.

After the great success of Monty Baboon's prize draw I have decided to ask different re-homed baboons to draw the competitions each time.  This time, after much deliberation I decided that the baboon to do the draw this time must be our own re-homed baboon, Edward Baboon-Martin who inspired the entire re-homing programme and because of whom over 40 baboons have been re-homed, with more to come in the Autumn.

Well as you know I always hope that all of my anipals could win the competition but you have four chances of a prize so come on have a go!!

Good luck to all of you.

  11. GruffHello Baboon HQ and friends! - Please do be entering me and my Kevin (one of your re-homed baboons!) - although it has to be said my Kevin is a bit of a handful, he be requiring my full attention, he's rather a feisty mischievous little man, for example as we speak he is swinging on the lampshade and he spends most mornings swimming about in my drink bowel! Paaaw bless, for I'd be lost without him! Take care,loves/licks - Barnie x

  17. I don't want to enter the competition, but I do want to say how wonderful it is. The prizes sound fun and I'm sure the winners will absolutely love them! Concatulations to her majesty for 60 years on throne! And concatulations to you for your excellent work rehoming baboons. I'm gonna turn this over to Barnabas.

    Barnabas here. Hi cousin. I miss you and hugging school, but I'm loving living here were it's sunny most of the time. Pumpkin, Candy, and EK are wonderful fun, and the mom person spoils us. She made banana bread and mac n cheese for me the other day. She only buys the best kibble for the kitties, and I have to admit I sneak some once in a while too! *waves*
