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


Nanyuki, Kenya

 

Background
Poco spent the first 9 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 – quite unnatural for a chimpanzee. He arrived to 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.

Poco’s latest update
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 visitors can keep looking forward to his entertaining performances.

*** KINDLY ENSURE YOU SELECT EITHER BASIC, STANDARD OR PREMIUM ADOPTIONS LEVELS. IF YOU FAIL TO DO THIS, THE DONATION WILL BE TREATED AS A REGULAR DONATION ***
