Three New Orphans
Meet Esake.

A third orphaned bonobo has come to Lola ya Bonobo. That's three new bonobos in just three months.

We need your help to feed, nurse, and mother them all back to health!
After a bushmeat hunter killed her mother, Esake was on her way to the illegal wildlife market where she would be sold as a pet. Fortunately, local authorities apprehended the hunter and confiscated Esake. Héritier Mpo, a member of Bonobo Conservation Initiative, cared for her and transported her to Lola ya Bonobo.

Esake was in captivity for a devastating two months. Not surprisingly, she arrived in poor shape and was suffering from fever, malnutrition, and parasites. She is now in quarantine and her surrogate mother Yvonne, and all the staff at Lola, are doing their very best to help her recover.
Meanwhile, Ingende and Lolabu are doing well! But they are not out of the woods yet. If all goes well, they will soon be moving from quarantine to the nursery to join the other bonobo kiddos.
