Pepe finds his Val-entine

Having been kept alone and chained by the neck for eight years in the circus, Pepe the spider monkey has finally been reunited with his own kind.

In the most moving chapter of his story so far, Pepe was introduced to Valerie, a young illegally-trafficked spider monkey. When they met, his joy was plain to see as they played and chattered to each other.

Help us bring Pepe and Valerie back to the jungle and give them the happily-ever-after they deserve.
