By adopting Poco - you can help to ensure he lives out the rest of his days in peace and space at the Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary at Ol Pejeta.
Of all our chimpanzees, Poco's history is perhaps the most tragic. He spent the first 9 years of his life in a cage suspended above a workshop in Burundi. Confined and used to attract customers, Poco had so little space he was only able to sit or stand on two legs-- quite unnatural for a chimpanzee. Even today, Poco will still stand on his hind legs, especially when showing off to visitors. Poco arrived to Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary in 1995 and has made great progress. He really likes people and will strut or throw sticks to get the attention of visitors. Poco is one of our more gentle chimpanzees, and his bipedal swagger ensures he stands out from the crowd!
By adopting Poco for a year, you will help us to give him the life he deserves. You will also help us to secure the future of all the orphans cared for at the Sanctuary.
