Mama Posseh Kamara
Animal Care Staff - Nursery & Babies

Posseh Kamara is the surrogate mother for all our newly arrived infants at the sanctuary. Mama Posseh is up at the crack of dawn every day before the chimps wake up so that the first face they see and trust is hers. Speaking to Mama Posseh, it is clear that she considers every single chimp as her child, showering them with affection but disciplining them when needed. Mama Posseh won the Siddle-Marsden Award in 2015 for her outstanding commitment to the chimps.
