Claudine André, saving the bonobos

Christian Epanya, Nathalie Tordjman
At the age of four, Claudine André goes to live in the Congo with her family. Her father is a veterinary surgeon. It is at the age of forty-seven that she begins her fight for the bonobos, those big and often-mistreated apes. In 2002, she founds the sanctuary Lola ya bonobo. Today the bonobos are still disappearing. Claudine André’s fight continues.
