Kyungu is an orphaned chimpanzee, and is just one of many chimps who have been rescued from poachers and who are being rehabilitated at the Lwiro Primate Rehabilitation Centre in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Young chimps are often kept in order to be sold as pets after their parents are killed for bushmeat. The people at Lwiro say her favourite food is grapes and that she can eat and eat them (look at that adorable belly!), leading to her nickname of Grape Girl!
This print is limited edition and only fifty will be made. Each print is 8" x 10" and will come signed and numbered. Twenty percent of the profits from each sale will go directly to Lwiro Primates.
