Proceeds of book go to world’s largest chimpanzee rehab sanctuary
By Gary Ferguson
Hardcover, 176 pages ($24.95, Save The Chimps)
Chronicling the trials as well as the triumphs of rescuing and rehabbing abused, neglected chimpanzees from labs, roadside “attractions” and even backyards, this chronicle of the work of primatologist Dr. Carole Noon will warm the hearts of animal lovers of all kinds. With more than 250 photos of chimps playing, socializing, relaxing, enjoying life or simply looking into the camera, it’s easy to understand why, as Noon says, “chimpanzees are amazing people.” All proceeds from the sale of the book go toward the funding of her Save the Chimps foundation, the world’s largest chimpanzee sanctuary, in Ft. Pierce, Fla.
