Chimps of the Lost Gorge
The Chimpanzees of Kyumbura Gorge, Uganda
We were impressed by last night's 'Chimps of the Lost Gorge' in the BBC's Natural World series. The footage was amazing - particularly of the chimps hunting Colobus monkeys - and it was less simplistic than many wildlife programmes. It was a real pleasure to see a community project to restore forest corridor which appeared to be a Ugandan initiative, a project for which the community seems to be taking responsibility because it has come to understand that they depend of the integrity of the forest as much as the chimps.
You can watch 'Chimps of the Lost Gorge' on www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00ykxq9/Natural_World_20102011_Chimps_of_the_Lost_Gorge/ until 8 March - and you can visit Kyumbura Gorge and Queen Elizabeth National Park with Bridge & Wickers Africa.
