If you had three friends who were in trouble would you do everything you could to help them?
In 2006 Stuart moved to Africa to carry out voluntary work at an animal park where he witnessed cruelty, neglect and suffering. This true story gives an account of his time there, told around a special bond he formed with three female chimpanzees.
After years of fighting to try and get authorities to take action on what was happening at this park he was left with one heartbreaking decision: stay so he could be there for the chimps he had grown so fond of but resign himself to all the bad things that went on there or leave the chimps behind and expose the cruelty in the hope someone would help stop it.
The day he left the chimps he swore he would fight for their welfare and never give up. This story is for them..........
A story that brings issues of captive animal welfare out of their own cage. A story that questions: if we are to keep animals in captivity do we not have a duty at the very least to ensure minimum standards are being reached?
A story of friendship, love and all the different forms this can come in.
