Mojo is a 5 year old, White-Handed Gibbon surrendered by a man who bought him and a female named Tasha through Instagram. When Mojo and Tasha were infants they was shipped to the man via bus cargo, a harrowing journey experienced by many a young wildlife that are illegally traded as pets. Sadly, Tasha died just a month before Mojo was surrendered to us. Missing her, Mojo would call for her loudly everyday. This led his owners to surrendered into the care of GReP very recently.
Despite his owner’s best efforts, Mojo is malnourished, has an unhealthy and uneven coat and lacks in appetite and motivation. But that’s what we’re here for! Mojo has just started his rehabilitation journey at the Gibbon Rehabilitation Project. And things are already looking up! On his second day, he started sing. To his surprise, Ud replied to the song. (He’s currently in quarantine and can’t see any of the other gibbons) He looks happy that someone’s finally responded to his call. Although it’s not Tasha, at least he can now communicate with his own species again! We hope this brings him some comfort as he gets used to the new environment. It’s a long process but we are determined to see him back in the wild one day.
