To prep me (and excite me!), Cleve sent me photos of the chimpanzees we'll be caring for while we're in Aketi.
This is Kathe, the older female.
Cleve and the team have been offered 15 chimpanzees for sale since September 2007, not including the chimpanzees offered for sale as bushmeat.
I'm hoping to be able to confiscate more orphans after setting up a better support system for them.
There is a lot of work to be done...
