Motambo the Miracle: An Update

Motambo is adjusting nicely to his new life at Tchimpounga.  He has fully recovered from his tetanus infection, and his significant wounds have healed.  A few small marks on his skin are the only reminders of the terrible trauma he suffered at the hands of poachers.

Motambo the Miracle

On October 10, 2012, this year’s seventh orphan arrived on Tchimpounga’s doorstep.  Like Mambou, this young five-year-old male chimpanzee was suffering from a very serious medical condition.  He also had terrible wounds on his left wrist and waist, had a fractured collarbone, and was missing several teeth in his upper jaw.
