She and her team have rescued thousands of orphaned primates from the bush meat trade and the pet industry since she began there in 2001, providing them with rehabilitation and long term care in a safe environment. The team also works with communities across Africa to develop long-term solutions to ensure the survival of primates in their natural habitats.

Repost from @ApesLikeUs: Happy #wildlifewednesday - I love the expressions of apes when they see themselves in the reflection on the front of my wide-angle lens. It ricochets from curiosity to caution to surprise to attack... seems I never am 100% certain what I'm going to get. But what I am certain of is a reaction - like this on the face of baby Chris, an infant Western Lowland #gorilla not too long after he had been rescued from poachers and delivered to the safety of @apeactionafrica's Mefou Primate Sanctuary. ⠀

THEN & NOW: Our tiniest orphan Sandie was just 4 weeks old when she was rescued from a wildlife trafficker & needed round-the-clock surrogate care. Now she’s 6 months old (swipe left) and has lots of teeth, a beautiful coat of hair, has learned to crawl and is eating solid food, with her favourite meals being oranges, bananas & avocado. As she grows it’s becoming important for her to begin her life with other chimps. Stay tuned for big changes coming soon! ⠀

Our newest arrival Noah was captured by a Chadian rebel group who killed his mother for food, then abandoned him when they were chased out of their forest camp. He arrived at Mefou Sanctuary starving and frightened – jumping at every strange new noise. The good news is he has been responding well to our loving care and is now eating everything in sight!

In a very sad start to the year, two little male chimps have been orphaned by poachers and will join us at Mefou Sanctuary for rehabilitation and lifelong care. 10-month old Noah is settling in after being rescued last week and the newest rescue (swipe left) has just been confiscated from traffickers by wildlife law enforcement group LAGA. He will travel to Mefou as soon as he is stable. You can lend your support to these traumatised infants and help us begin a lifetime of loving care by donating at https://buff.ly/2E44stM (link also in bio).⠀

Flashback to 2012 when our gorillas Luci & Chickaboo starred in Unreported World. The long-running UK foreign affairs programme traveled to Cameroon to report on the bushmeat crisis, and spent time with us at Mefou Sanctuary, learning about the devastating impact of eating apes.
