Turns out Budongo chimps are serious about colobus hunting, it just took a while to get back into the swing of things
From forests in DRC to upscale furniture showrooms in eastern China, a photographer has documented the journey of Mukula – a substitute for endangered rosewoods that is now under threat itself.
‘This new documentary fairly shows both sides of the argument for not keeping whales and dolphins in captivity, and as always, the visual story is more powerful... than the spoken word. The orca tell us their story all too clearly and painfully.’ – Virginia McKenna OBE | #InsideTheTanks #TankFree #SanctuariesNotTanks

"Those chimps are living things. They are us."- Caregiver Joseph Thomas.
The Humane Society of the United States and New York Blood Center came to an agreement ...recently in May 2017 after years of dispute about the care of retired research chimps NYBC abandoned in Liberia West Africa. Fundraising efforts continue to build a proper sanctuary with NYBC partially contributing. In March 2016, a team from HSUS visited to observe. NYBC stopped all funding for food and water and also refused to pay their caregivers who used their own meager finances to continue feeding them. Over 60 chimps now live on six mangrove islands. Their care is being carried out by HSUS and Humane Society International to improve the dire situation in which the chimps were left to die if not for the heroic efforts of their original caregivers who had worked for NYBC and were abandoned as well.
