Hello dear Friends,
There are currently 10 very young ones in our infant group. Most of you already know Elia who arrived in November 2009 at our sanctuary and who had been kept in horrible conditions.
Well, we have good news today for this 5-year-old female as the once called « bird-cage-chimp » has made soooo much progress!
Yes! Elia has now settled in completely and has her place in the group.
Elia likes to stay on her own, especially high up in the trees and she sometimes looks like a huge spider going from branches to branches.
The others of course join her and they have quite some fun chasing one another in the trees.
But Elia obviously still wishes to be alone, keeping her plastic bottle now and then and not sharing her nest at night with any one else…
However, for the last few weeks, she has put a lot of attention on baby Vida, the youngest baby of the group. Elia isn’t maternal at all, but we can feel that she now wishes to have contact and to play with the very young ones. Vida is her favourite friend and when Elia isn’t in the highest tree of the open air quarters, she is playing with baby Vida.

We are pleased to see our former « autistic » friend behaving like this!
Our dearest wish is that she gets rid of her plastic bottle and that she has a good friend to share her days and her nights….
Again, well done Elia! You are doing great and we are all proud of you!
