WSPA – Reintroduction of Bonobos

WSPA – Reintroduction of Bonobos

– The world’s first release of bonobos in Lola Ya Bonobo Sanctuary

Year: 2009 – 2010
Partners: WSPA

Project background

The main aim of the project is to secure the survival of the species in the wild. Through thorough measuring and registration, we will be able to use our experiences to create a basis for a proper register that contains knowledge to be used over the next few years. The bonobos will also be counted and monitored to prevent poaching and to keep track of how well the bonobos survive on their own.
