Photo Essay: Chimp Profiles

    Dr.Carole Noon is awesome for what she has done for these chimpanzees, that were used and abused in research…..

  • Stephen Chin

    Dr Carole Noon’s life and work should be made known to all children in the world’s schools. Carole should be canonized as a saint. Carole should be posthumously awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. God bless Carole.

    This all breaks my heart at the cruelty these chimps (and so many others) have endured at human hands. How could we do this to our closest species? I’m deeply grateful to all who work with these chimps to see they have some peace and a more natural life following their years of torture. Thank you for your work and the good you’re doing for these chimps. I hope the day comes when humans will leave animals where they belong and stop using them for human needs. We’re supposed to be stewards for the animals. Instead we’ve done great harm throughout the planet.

    What an incredible documentary!! As I watched this program last night, I couldn’t help but cry my eyes out. I love animals of all kind, and have seen alot of stories, but this one REALLY tugged at my heart! It is amazing to see the dedication and passion that is put into making sure these beautiful creatures can see that they are loved. When they showed the chimps FINALLY getting to go outside for the first time in years, I was overwhelmed with emotions. I couldn’t imagine actually being there in person….what an amazing reward for such hard work! If I ever win the lotto, I promise I will donate whatever I get to this sanctuary and program…I realize I dont need anything….they need everything!!
