Lounama

Lounama

When Lounama was relocated to Tchibebe Island, it was clear that something wasn’t right. Staff kept a close watch on the chimp and, after a thorough examination, discovered that she had a faulty valve in her heart. Lounama received immediate treatment for the condition and is regularly monitored. When Lounama couldn’t return to Tchibebe Island, fate intervened: a little orphaned chimp named Falero arrived and was in desperate need of an adopted mother. Some staff say it was love at first sight! Today, the two chimps are inseparable.
