Meet our special guest Dr. Sheri Speede, founder and director of Sanaga-Yong Chimpanzee Rescue Center and advisor to the Chimpanzee Sanctuary Fund. Dr. Speede collaborated with the Cameroonian government to provide sanctuary for chimpanzees orphaned by the illegal ape meat trade. She received her doctorate of veterinary medicine from Louisiana State University and is the author of “Kindred Beings: What Seventy-Three Chimpanzees Taught Me About Life, Love and Connection.” Dr. Speede splits her time between Cameroon and the United States and works to secure the future of chimpanzees in sanctuaries and the wild.
