My Scholarship Entry - Mefou Primate Sanctuary, Cameroon Images from a visit to Mefou primate sanctuary in Cameroon, which is home to over 200 primates rescued from the illegal bushmeat industry.

My Scholarship entry - A 'place' I have visited

Infant arrivals at the sanctuary require round-the-clock care until they can be introduced into a family group. Here, under the watchful eye of their caregiver Kristie, chimps Mac and Mbia enjoy some fruit, whilst their friend Ayisha checks out what Chickaboo the gorila has for lunch. All of the infants in this image experienced the deaths of family members at the hands of poachers.
