Chimps Are People Too

Danny Wallace is on a mission to convince the world that chimpanzees, who share 99 per cent of our DNA, should be given the same rights as humans. Armed with the latest scientific evidence he travels the globe to quiz primatologists, philosophers and animal rights lawyers on whether chimps should be classed as people. However, it's Kanzi, an ape who lives in Iowa, who might hold the key to Danny's quest, when the two of them strike up a proper conversation in English.
