Episode Summary

Eugene Goes Wild
With the ultimate goal of returning chimps to the wild, Eugene travels to the Lekedi Reserve in Gabon, a central African Country with extensive wilderness and more animals than people. Lekedi appears to be prime chimp habitat, the place where he might create a "launch into the wild" camp to prepare his chimps for the future. This is Eugene's first encounter with chimps in their natural surroundings and he gains valuable insight that should help him achieve his ultimate dream: to set once captive chimps free, to live as they were meant to live. As he leaves the reserve, he spots a chained-up chimp used as a tourist attraction, and hopes to be able to return and rescue her.moreless

  • I love this program. Abused chimpanzees, are rescued and taken to a safe place which ends in allowing a chimp to be a chimp. The transformation that takes place is one that has touched my heart. Viewing different parts of Africa is a BONUS!moreless

    We love this program. Abused chimpanzzees, are rescued and taken to a safe place which ends in allowing a chimp to be a chimp. The staff at Chimp Eden, are professional and knowlegable in regard on how to care for chimpanzzees. They take you to different countries of Africa where you can see for yourself the resuce mission. From being resuced to the transportation process is quite interesting. Once at Chimp Eden the chimps are required to be in quarenteen for a period of time befor they are released into the santuary. How much fun it is to see the chimps live as chimps. This is a wonderful program for anyone to see. Not only educational but intertaining, as well. Highly recommend!moreless
