Two Argentinian chimpanzees get set to move to the UK

STORY: Chimpanzees Sacha and Kangoo

are getting ready for a big trip

Location: Buenos Aires, Argentina

They'll be flying from Buenos Aires

to London in a few weeks

to give them a chance to live with

other apes in a sanctuary

(Luis Mazzola, Buenos Aires Eco-Park)

“They have been trained since the beginning of the year to get accustomed to the transport cage. Their carer trains them every day, rehearsing the cage opening and closing, so that they can get accustomed to that habitat for at least 24 hours. Once they are locked what we want is to avoid having them anesthetized, this is the reason for so much training.”
