Meet Luguswa!

Last Friday afternoon a new chimp arrived unexpectedly to Lwiro in a tiny wooden cage. He was brought by authorities of the Ministery of the Environment of South Kivu. He had been confiscated in a village from the south of the province after being kept there as pet for 3 years...

The chimp name is Luguswa. He is a male about 4 years old with a very special personality. Although he is so thin, pale and hairless, he is strong and very confident with the keeper. His past must have been really hard and now he is really enjoying his new life at the sanctuary. He specially loves feeding many different kind of vegetables and fruits to choose!

Hopefully in few weeks he will get more weight and he will become a healthy and happy chimp ready to meet the group of youngers!
