Thank you and good luck Austin
This month we said goodbye to a long-term member of CERCOPAN staff, Austin Igbebor. Austin started work at CERCOPAN exactly 15 years ago, in June 1998. After many years as a primate caretaker, and having been trained by numerous visiting vets, his potential and enthusiasm for the medical aspect of our work was undeniable and in 2009, he was officially promoted to veterinary nurse Thanks to Austin’s excellent performance in this position, he was further promoted to Senior Staff by the end of that same year and began managing junior staff.
During his 15 years at CERCOPAN, Austin has worked tirelessly for the monkeys’ health and general well being. He was a mentor to the primate caretakers, a great student and assistant for visiting vets, and an ambassador for CERCOPAN at the yearly international PASA workshops. At the leaving party, we presented Austin with a framed collection of pictures showcasing his work and the many staff,visitors and volunteers who he worked alongside over the years. We will would like to take this opportunity to thank Austin on behalf of all all of the people and monkeys he has helped. We will all miss him greatly and wish him the very best in his future career.
