DESCRIPTION:
(from Disney+'s web site, October 2020) Meet the Chimps takes viewers into the secret life of Chimp Haven, one of the largest and most unique wildlife sanctuaries in the world. The 200-acre refuge, tucked deep in the forested heart of Louisiana, is home to nearly 300 chimpanzees. This six-part National Geographic series tracks the ups and downs of this extraordinary group of chimps, who have been given a second chance at life by a staff whose dedication, compassion, and commitment knows no bounds. Through a seamless blend of natural history and observational-documentary filmmaking, the chimps – the heart and soul of the series – are front and center. A real-life drama with a full emotional range, Meet the Chimps gives unparalleled access to everything happening at Chimp Haven, including food squabbles, alliances, romances, ‘bromances’, tears, tantrums, high jinxes, and heartbreaks.
