We need you to keep Poco comfortable and happy at Sweetwaters. You can help us by adopting him.


Nanyuki, Kenya

 

Poco spent the first nine years of his life in a cage suspended above a workshop in Burundi. Confined and used to attract customers, Poco had so little space he was only able to sit or stand on two legs.He arrived at Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary in 1995 and has become a completely different chimpanzee. He really likes people and will strut or throw sticks to get the attention of visitors.

The new enrichment structures at the Sweetwaters Sanctuary have been keeping him busy, but he prefers to enjoy them by himself. As he is getting older he is becoming more of a loner. He waits for the other chimpanzees to have their turn and when they wander off goes to fish for honey and other treats. He recently had a dental check and a respiratory system check, and per his health report, it is safe to say that visitors can keep looking forward to his entertaining performances.
