Terrific and involving...

"Better than the Animal Planet series as broadcast; without all the teasers and commercials that slow the narrative, this surprisingly moving series will make you cry and make you laugh. The human hero inspires, and the chimps touch your heart; you'll never see a chimpanzee in captivity the same way again. What more can you ask from any experience than that? Eye-opening, life-affirming, uplifting stuff. You'll watch it more than once and you'll want everyone in your family to watch it with you. Well worth the purchase price."
Chimp Eden
Sweeney | Keokuk, IA USA | 12/21/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I hardly ever watch TV but got hooked on this series from the get-go. The Chimp Eden sanctuary, located in South Africa and associated with the Jane Goodall Institute, is a refuge for chimpanzees, many of whom were orphaned by the bush-meat trade or abused in captivity. The Animal Planet series, which ran for two seasons, shows rescue missions and the rehabilitation that goes on at the sanctuary. Viewers see the progress of the individual chimps and their integration into chimp society. If you are interested in the great apes and their plight, you will love Escape to Chimp Eden. Presently, only Season One is available on DVD, although the episodes of Season Two can be downloaded through Amazon Video on Demand or iTunes. The important work of the sanctuary continues and can be monitored at the Chimp Eden website at [...]."
A weekly "must see" for animal lovers
Marilyn Pancake | Van Wert, Ohio, USA | 06/13/2009

"We love Eugene, his staff and the chimps. The programs are educational, humorous and yes, sad on occasion. The rescue trips offer us insight into other areas of the world. We tape the programs and rewatch with our grandchildren over and over. Keep them coming, Animal Planet."
