This is me in Cameroon (Dec 08). I was helping at the Limbe Wildlife Centre which cares for rescued primates. Here I am teaching the local kids about conservation through one of my puppet shows
I am telling them the story of Chella the rescued gorilla. He was found, as a baby, in the back of a taxi alongside his dead mother and a stash of drugs. He was taken to the local police station where they didn’t know what to do with him and gave him beer to drink. He was very dehydrated and malnorished when he arrived at the centre but today he is a magnificent silverback.
