Today’s is a post of welcomes.
The 5th of May another young monkey arrived. This time a juvenile putty-nosed guenon, Cercopithecus nictitans, was handed to us by a MINFOF official from Idenau. He had found this young female tied to a boat on the beach in a small village called Bibunde. No persons were around, so he, as a MINFOF official, confiscated the guenon, and brought it to us. It is illegal to keep any monkey in captivity without permission in Cameroon. We call her Bibunde. Bibunde is now in quarantine and will have to stay there for three months and go through three health checks before she can join our group of six other putty-nosed guenons.
We want to welcome our new volunteer Jenn Draiss who arrived on Monday and is staying with us for three months. Jenn is a primatology student from New York. We are sure she will have a great experience and enjoy herself a lot. We are very happy she is here.
