The baby chimp relaxed after a traumatic day closed in a small box with metal net, as Anna took care of the baby in her motel room for the night. The Limbe Wildlife Centre came the day after to take the baby for veterinary treatment and lifetime care. The night after we got the terrible news that the baby chimp rescued has died.

The Okapi, often called "forest giraffe" is an endangered relative of the giraffe that can be found only in Ituri forest in DRC. This giant animal is one of the oldest surviving mammals on earth. The stripes it has on its behind helps in camouflage as it looks like streaks of sunlight filtering through the trees. These stripes are unique to each individual and used for identification so you can say his ID is on his butt. The traffickers confessed to have traded other okapi skins in the past highlighting once again the illegal trade in such an endangered animal.
