Chimp School


In Sierra Leone chimps are struggling. After civil war and Ebola, they are not a priority. The race is on to bring them back from the brink. Tacugama Chimp Sanctuary is doing that. For the chimps the mission is simple; find your personality, find your place in a troop, and find a way to live. This is an intimate, harrowing and heart-warming story told through the evolving and enchanting lives of individual chimp characters fighting to survive.
