Comments: Sue has a lovely speaking voice and the chimpanzees are filmed wonderfully to show them as they truly are. The close ups are amazing as you see these chimps.
It is wonderful to see these chimps that where being used in labs now free. Two hundred and fourteen chimpanzees live at Chimp Haven. You do get lots of information presented in a fun easy manner.
At times it feels as if you are almost there with the chimpanzees. This documentary is so well shot.
The staff at the sanctuary are all kind hearted people.
We are shown how labs used to treat chimpanzees. It was sadistic. It is a brief look and sad to see. Humans tortured these animals. In two thousand fifteen chimpanzees became endangered and there fore a protected species.
Chimpanzees are a beautiful animal and deserve to live in peace.
We see girl chimps introduced to the male ones. Things go well. Chimpanzees actually kiss like humans do.
Chimpanzees do deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.
