Oct 2015

Trembling with fright, her little body marred with the marks of the chain that had kept her bound to a tree, Maria came to the N/a’an ku sê Wildlife Sanctuary in October 2015. Clinging to staff and volunteers, Maria desperately sought the security and care so lacking from her life. Timid at first, it didn’t take long for our monkey toddler to gain much needed confidence and embrace that bubbly baboon nature we all love!
