PASA/AFRICA: Babies chimpanzee and gorilla are saved, but they still need help

Just a few months ago, baby chimpanzee Tita was a victim of one of a horrific poaching story.

With a lot of support and the dedicated care from the staff at Chimpanzee Conservation Center (CCC), PASA’s member organization in Guinea, Tita is growing stronger every day. She is even making new friends!

Tita was just introduced to the other orphaned babies at CCC – the first chimps she met since she saw her family beaten to death a few months ago.

The look on her face when she met the other orphaned chimps was priceless. 

Tragically, Bobga, a sweet little gorilla, is yet another victim of the illegal wildlife trade.

Bobga was very small when his mother and family were slaughtered for meat as they tried to protect him. Though he survived, what he saw will probably scar him forever.

Like many other orphans of the bushmeat  trade, Bobga was tied up and kept as a novelty pet. When rescuers found out, they hurried to free him as soon as possible.

Bobga was taken to sanctuary at Limbe Wildlife Centre, a PASA member in Cameroon. The staff are giving him all the love and tender care he needs at this delicate age, but they can only do this with your help.
