“It has now been six years since I joined the Chimpanzee Trust team, first as the Sanctuary Manager/Veterinarian and now as the Operations/Conservation Programs Director. With each year my love for the chimpanzees in our care particularly and the work I do for their protection generally, increases and continues to drive me. I feel fortunate to be doing what I love and for the dedicated team that I have had the good fortune of knowing and working with.”
