The face of rescue—and rest! Ikoto, the orphaned bonobo, was rescued by our partners Friends of Bonobos at only 3 months old from the illegal wildlife trade. Right now, he spends most of his days playing, eating & sleeping—all building blocks for skills he will need in the wild.

Memories ❤️

Last year, I went to Kinshasa for the first time and I had the pleasure to visit the wonderful LOLA YA BONOBO where many bonobos live. Here is one of my favorite videos.

What are the biggest differences between bonobos and chimps?

I have always seen them as very similar apes, but i have never known the exact distinctions. and if anybody could tell me them, that would be great!

lots of sex, not many babies, why?

As I understand it, the so-called "bonobo handshake" is sex, used to smooth social cohesion and bond different individuals and groups in bonobo societies. So how is it that all the sex does not drive up bonobo population numbers to the point where they are having starving babies die?

I read that bonobos birth only every five years or so, though I presume that they have a more frequent ovulation and remain fertile relatively as much as humans.

And I am aware that among human gatherer-hunter people the lack or abundant calories easily available leads to a lessening of female fertility and that human infants in Nature will die often enough, sometimes within a week of birth, and that when Nature does not take a new child not easily fed, some primitive (meaning low/no-tech) groups will commit infanticide.

With Bonobos being endangered, can they not set them, loose in the southeastern United States to take hold there? Too cold? Perhaps there’s other habitats. South America?
