When Baati was taken from the forest after his mother was killed for the illegal bushmeat trade, he was kept in a small wooden box, deprived of all physical contact and comfort...a baby without his mother.

He was rescued by IDA-Africa in December 2005 when he was less than six months old.  During his early days at Sanaga-Yong Center, he couldn't tolerate being touched by human caregivers or chimpanzees.  He was too scared.  With patience and time though, Baati began to trust and learned once again about the comfort of being in loving arms.
