A Zairian smuggler offered two chimpanzees to a farmer, who was delivering vegetables to the local market. The farmer knew that this kind of transaction was illegal, but also knew that the only way to save the chimpanzees was to make the deal. The Zairians showed him two young chimpanzees and offered them to him for 3000 USD. The farmer took the offer and stalled the smugglers, pretending to have to round up the money. He contacted the Zambian species conservation service, which immediately monitored the market. A few days later they received information which lead them to the smugglers’ hideout. At first, the great apes weren’t found when searching the flat. However, after an extensive search three baby chimpanzees were found. The third baby was close to death and hadn’t even been for sale anymore. All three of them were brought to Chimfunshi and named Clement, Brian and Doreen. Brian and Clement became inseparable – Doreen unfortunately died in 2006.
