In September 2004, at the age of around 4 months, Essogoué was handed-over to the project by two boys from a local village called “Essogoué”. Despite his young age, Essogoué will never be reintroduced since he has lost some critical survival skills and has gained dependence on humans. As he grows older, he is becoming more and more confident. He is, a little like Tani, very boisterous, brave and out-going. He loves Aframomoum fruit, climbing in trees and chest-beating.
