Spreading the word: Lola ya Bonobo
Lola ya Bonobo is the world’s only bonobo sanctuary. Located in a beautiful sprawling forest just outside Kinshasa, the capital of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, it is not just the ‘Paradise of Bonobos’ (as its name means in Lingala) but a valuable conservation resource. Thousands of Congolese people, most of them children, visit Lola every year. Visitors learn that bonobos are an Endangered Species, and that it is illegal to hunt or capture them. When bonobos are rescued from the bushmeat trade, they’re brought to Lola. Some are subsequently released into the wild.
