Mbia was sick with a chest infection when she was confiscated from a restaurant owner who was keeping her illegally as a pet. A local conservation group worked with us to provide immediate medical treatment that probably saved her life. Once she reached sanctuary our team worked hard to restore the baby's health, including weaning her off the only diet she had known – soft drinks and white bread. Mbia is now a healthy youngster, living amongst 9 other chimps in our infant group.


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