Friends of Bonobos/Lola ya Bonobo

Nonprofit Organization

The Offical Friends of Bonobos Facebook page


Friends of Bonobos' sole purpose is to support and promote the work of the ABC (Amis des Bonobos du Congo), a congolese (DRC) non-profit organisation that has been taking in orphaned bonobos, since 1993. The "Lola ya Bonobo" sanctuary was created in 2002 and today is home to more than 60 bonobos who have been or are still being rehabilitated. In 2009 a first group of these bonobos travelled half-way across the country to "Ekolo ya Bonobo" for the first ever bonobo release into the wild.
