  • Eugene Goes Wild

    Full Episode

    S 2 : Ep 20 - 6/4/09

    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
