Here you see one of the little ones arriving at the airport to be taken to the Lwiro Primate Center.



A real clamor erupted at the Lwiro Primate Center in Congo when Beni and Mbandaka arrived. All the other residents of the nusery ward wanted to be the first to hold the new babies.

The other infants all fought over the new little ones and who would get to carry them around, explains volunteer Rebecca Jones. In particular, Lulinga (a 5 year old female) takes care of the new baby Mbandaka and carries her around on her back just like a mother chimpanzee would. She also sleeps with Mbandaka every night while Beni preferred to sleep with a human keeper.

Animal Rescue Chase

The Great Animal Rescue Chase celebrates the art of animal rescue with a worldwide race to rescue one million. It’s a free event, open to all, and is perhaps the only global animal rescue event aimed at helping any animal in distress, anywhere in the world. Our ambition is to create a culture of enthusiasm and pride in animal activism. We believe in teaching, by example, that there is a hero in each of us just waiting to be unleashed. Empowered animal lovers can not only save lives, but build the momentum for powerful animal welfare reform.
