Juvenile Group

Perry is a young male who came to Tacugama in May 2011, from a family in Port Loko. Perry was in very bad shape when he arrived at Tacugama with multiple problems and weighing only 1.70kg. He had almost no hair on his body. We had doubts about his survival, but thanks to the hard work and care of our resident vet and Mama Posseh, he grew to 4.8kg by December 2011 and began to grow hair all over his body. He has grown into a very confident happy chimp and has integrated well with the rest of his chimp family which consists of 12 others in total - 7 females and 6 males.
