Rehabilitation

The baby primates, as humans, are very attached to their mothers. In the case of chimpanzees, they live closely with their mums until they are around 5 years old. Most of the chimpanzees arrives to CRPL before 3 years old. What it means, their mother was killed to be able to take the baby. The rescued primates, thus, arrived traumatized and because of the mistreatment while in captivity during the time with the poacher, they also arrive in bad health status. Our main goal is to recover them.
