A New Beginning

Episode 3 of 3

At a chimpanzee orphanage in Liberia, the team reach breaking point caring for 38 rescued baby chimps, and the orphans have their first taste of life in the forest.

At Liberia’s only home for rescued chimpanzees, new arrivals keep flooding in. Jimmy and Jenny Desmond and their team are now at breaking point, with 38 chimps to look after round the clock.

After losing one of the chimps to illness, they are more determined than ever to build them all a new sanctuary in the forest where they can live like wild chimps. To prepare for the move, the orphans are learning to make their own nests, and they get their first taste of life in the wild. With chimpanzees on the point of extinction in West Africa, the team try to tackle the wider crisis.
