The Chimfunshi Wildlife Orphanage looks after chimpanzees that have lost their families – usually to poachers. The compound is spacious. The wooded preserve in northern Zambia resembles the chimpanzees' original habitat over the border in Congo.
On this week's eco@africa, we shop at a Food Assembly in Germany, see how Lake Victoria's water hyacinths can be used as fertilizer and visit a chimpanzee orphanage in Liberia. Check out the show for this and much more.
Poaching and disappearing habitat are threatening chimpanzees with extinction. But a sanctuary in Zambia is giving orphaned and injured chimps a second chance at life.

Join us for a very special 100th show! We discover a community gardening project, visit Africa's largest wind farm, get up close with chimpanzees and taste a drinking straw that's good enough to eat.
