Tia and Aimee one year later

It's been over one year since Tia's daughter Aimee was taken by poachers, confiscated by my project manager Dondo Kante and returned to her mother by myself, Dondo and Michel Sahdjakho, another research assistant on the Fongoli Savanna Chimpanzee Project. Both Tia and Aimee have recovered well. This is a brief video I took of Tia feeding on figs while Aimee just hangs around. It is the middle of the dry season, but they are in one of the small areas of gallery forest, along Tukantaba ravine here...
