Here is a photo of Sankuru, a female bonobo at the Ekolo ya Bonobo reintroduction site, with her baby, a little female called Mwinda, which means “Light” in Lingala.
Sankuru has come a long way. She spent the first 7 years of her life in a wooden cage in someone’s yard. She was finally brought to Lola ya Bonobo in June 2009. Today, she is a fine mother.
