Thanks for sharing. Not only is this sanctuary helping chimps, but also providing jobs to the locals. A win win.

How wonderful I wish all zoos felt that way. I hope they make it in the wild. Good Luck, babies

Thank goodness for the wonderful people and organisations who work so hard to protect primates in Africa - a pity we can't spread a rumour that eating their relatives will cause a slow lingering death - it's dreadful how there's so little 'wild' to release them into,but that poachers are still killing them and selling them as pets and bush meat. America and other first world countries have a lot to answer for by not having laws to prevent stupid people keeping them as pets. They are wild animals not pets, and many languish in small cages for life. Good luck to all the rescuers and all those selfless people who give their time and money to helping the slowly dwindling number of primates in the world.
