The Liberia Chimpanzee Rescue and Protection organization in West Africa founded by Jim and Jenny Desmond oversees the care of rescue chimps who were previously used as lab animals or illegal pet trades.

‘They’re very similar to human babies. At first, we made sure to really give them their space and let them come to us until they were ready to explore,’ she said. ‘But what was really spectacular was when we went back two years later, they immediately remembered us. Which is outrageous. That would never happen with a human baby. It just goes to show how spectacular these animals are.  

The show’s third episode, titled A New Beginning, premiered on Dec. 19 and features the team caring for 38 baby chimps. 

‘Baby Chimp Rescue really shines a light on our friends Jim and Jenny Desmond, in Liberia,’ Mara said. ‘You see the struggles and also the incredible moments, where these chimpanzees, who were really left with nothing and about to die, end up thriving under their care. I just think it’s a very inspiring thing to see, and I hope that everyone will watch it.’
