Chimfunshi Wildlife Orphanage, as the name suggests, is an orphanage for the sick, wounded or unwanted wild animals. But it is best known as home to orphaned chimpanzees.
The Orphanage was started by a British couple Sheila and David Siddle (who died on June 30 2006) when the couple nursed an injured chimpanzee back to health in 1983. It has since then grown from one chimpanzee to well over 100. Today, it is one of largest chimpanzee sanctuaries in the world.
The Sanctuary gets most of its animals from poachers attempting to smuggle the infants into Zambia and also from dilapidated zoos and circuses from all over the world.
