Co-presented with IN DEFENSE OF ANIMALS. Veterinarian Sheri Speede, founder of the Sanga-Yong Chimpanzee Rescue Center, writes of the extraordinary resilience of chimpanzees in her book, Kindred Beings: What Seventy Three Chimpanzees Taught Me about Life, Love and Connection (HarperOne). After having served as a conservation advocate in Cameroon, she found her true calling by working with the Cameroonian government to found Sanga-Yong, which shelters chimpanzees rescued from the illegal ape meat trade. Sheri Speede and Edmund Stone also established In Defense of Animals-Africa. "All who read this book will be deeply moved." - Jane Goodall.
