About Mama P.
Mama P started working for Tacugama as a cook, but quickly moved into the animal welfare department where she is now the head surrogate mother for all the rescue chimpanzees we unfortunately receive. For close to 20 years, Mama P has dedicated her life to caring for these little ones from morning to night. Although Mama P’s efforts have been recognized in the past, being nominated as PASA’s care staff of the year and having been featured in different documentaries and features, finally we are pleased to announce that Mama P is starring in her own children’s book “Mama P: Chimpanzee Champion”, written by Diane Toomey and Deborah R. Meyer, with illustrations by Henry Ezeokeke.
