Letters from Claudine André 2: Negotiating for Ekolo ya Bonobo

FROM THE ARCHIVES - 2008: In Claudine André's last entry, she described her excitement as her flight took off for Basankusu and her anticipation of working with the people of the Ilonga Mpôo tribe to provide long-term protection for bonobos who would soon be returned to the wild at Ekolo ya Bonobo.

In this slightly edited post, she describes their negotiations.
