This sanctuary in DRC wants to save bonobos from extinction

The one and only bonobo sanctuary in the world is located in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. There, these great apes are protected so they can thrive. Our reporter Charles Villa visited Lola ya Bonobo.

    I could be off, but wouldn't it be logical to at least feed a Bonobo baby, Human breast milk as opposed to Cow milk? I mean, if we share 99% of our DNA, the hormones in the human milk might foster more natural growth than bovine mammary secretions. Gorilla, Orangtan, or Chimp milk would also be of value in the absence of true mother's milk.
