"Joko Junior lives in a group with four female chimps," Meilvang said. "His mum, Jerry, and the three other females, Jerusalem, Gola and Yoyema."
Normally, the sanctuary doesn't breed chimps. "We want to save our resources, money and space, for the rescued chimps," Meilvang explained.
This is because the chimps in the region need all the help they can get. "All the chimps at Tacugama are orphans because of bushmeat hunting or human wildlife conflicts," Meilvang said. "Most of them would have been taken away from their mum at a very young age."
