Caught in a cruel forest snare, Chickaboo could have lost her hand or even her life if she hadn't been rescued by the Last Great Ape organisation (LAGA), and brought to us for help. When she arrived at Mefou, Chickaboo was severely traumatised and refused all food and drink. In this condition, infant gorillas often don’t survive. Our team worked around the clock to save her and she is now fully recovered and very playful – spending her days with her gorilla companion Luci.


To take action and help support Chickaboo for the next year with food, medicine and care, just complete our online adoption form.
