Baby Chimp Orphaned by Bushmeat Trade in Africa, Airlifted to Safety by IFAW

Publication Date: 
Thu, 04/04/2002
Thumbnail: 
Image: 
The chimpanzee, nicknamed “Commando” and of the sub-species Schwienfurthii, is roughly two years of age, based on dental development, but due his poor state of health is so severely stunted in growth, that rescuers initially estimated him to be four months old. Poachers had killed his mother to fuel the growing illegal bushmeat trade, leaving him orphaned.

The African Rainforests and Rivers Conservation (ARRC), a U.S.-based conservation group working in CAR, initially removed the young chimpanzee from its abusive and illegal owner.
