The Chimpanzee Chronicles:
Stories of Heartache and Hope from Behind the Bars
The Chimpanzee Chronicles presents an uncommon perspective that will take you behind the bars for a glimpse into the hidden worlds and real lives of captive chimpanzees.
Twenty-four original stories from around the globe, written by primatologists, sanctuary founders/directors, veterinarians, care givers, filmmakers and lawyers, take you on an emotional journey into the veiled worlds of biomedical lab research, the entertainment industry, and exotic pet trade. All is revealed through the eyes, ears, and hearts of the chimpanzees and their human caregivers.
All the narratives bear witness to the injustice, exploitation and heartless treatment of captive chimpanzees. But the book is not only about suffering; it’s also about hope, compassion and the possibility of change.
A percentage of book sale profits will be donated to Project R & R: Release and Restitution for Chimpanzees in U.S. Laboratories, a campaign of the New England Anti-Vivisection Society (NEAVS) to end the use of chimpanzees in all research.
