Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary, Sierra Leone

I found Mr. Stubbs!! He's not dead!! 






The expressions on these chimps' faces are priceless.   What I didn't like about this place was that its was more like a zoo, than a rehabilitation center.  In the 20 years of operation, no chimps have been released back into the wild.  Some escaped but many of those were captured again and brought back to this "rehabilitation". The proprietor had a list of reason why the chimps are not released in the wild, but most of them were lame.
