Lecture about chimpanzees

March 22, 2013 · 6:04 PM

Dr. Sheri Speede, author of “Almost Human: What 73 Chimpanzees Taught Me About Life, Love and Connection,” will give a presentation Saturday, March 30 at 1 p.m. at the Shaw Community Building.  Speede lived full time in Cameroon, Africa, from 1998-2011 on a mission to ensure the survival of endangered chimpanzees and gorillas. Working in concert with Cameroon’s government, she and her staff created a sanctuary for chimpanzees orphaned by the ape-meat trade, and provide care to those still living free in Cameroon’s forests.

Her book recounts those experiences and is due out later this year.
