Ituri

Democratic Republic of Congo, Butembo.

 

This baby chimp was orphaned in the Congolese forest near the Maiko Park. Despite the trauma she was very curious and surprisingly social. She is now being taken care of by the Jane Goodall Institute in Uganda (lwiro.blogspot.com/search/label/Ituri). This was our first meeting before I became her foster-mother.
