Baby Bonobo Rescued

A new born baby Bonobo was rescued from poachers in a particularly troublesome spot in the Congo. BOTH parents had been killed for bushmeat, and they were trying to sell the baby as a pet.

Bonobo’s are only found in one part of the Congo – NOWHERE else in the world. They have become so rare that one scientist, who recently attempted to track them, reported not seeing any during the whole period of their trek. Bonobo’s are our closest living relatives, even closer than Chimpanzees. They may soon be out of reach.

  1. Do you have any additional information on the Baby? Did it survive and where is it now? Who was the scientist, so I can look into their research?
