Births within the Triangle
October 22, 2001: Choupette is the first released female to give birth to baby in the forest. Thanks to the genetic analysis we learned very quickly that the happy dad is : Mékoutou. Small Andréa unfortunately diseappars in July 2002 when she met a group of wild chimpanzees.
05 Mars 2003: Jeannette is found after missing for one month and
a half. She were at more than 5 km in the South-east of the camp of the
Triangle, at almost 10 km of the place where she had been seen for the last
time. She were with a group of wild chimpanzees and she gave birth to a small
male, Maï. We await impatiently the hairs taking which, thanks to
the genetic work of typing carried out by Dr. Benoit Goossens, which will enable us to
determine his paternity. We will not fail to keep you informed.
August 07, 2003 : it is the turn of Bounie, who passes more and more time with the wild chimpanzees, to be seen with a baby in her arms. Three of the five first chimpanzees released in 1996 thus reproduced in freedom. We saw her again near a tailboard in June 2004, all alone. We do not know what Sanga became, her baby.
