The life of Kiki Jackson

Kiki Jackson, a sensitive male in his early 30's, has lived at Sanaga-Yong Chimpanzee Rescue Center since June of 2000 when IDA-Africa rescued him from a concrete cell in front of a resort hotel along Cameroon's Atlantic coast. His female companion had starved to death in the same cell, and Kiki, who had lived in the cell for 14 years, was near death from starvation when we found him. Today he lives with 5 other chimpanzees in an enclosure complex that includes 3.5 acres of lush forest, but he still faces daily emotional challenges - he doesn't like any changes to his routine and is easily frightened. His closest chimpanzee companion is Massamba. Here, Kiki is calm as he sits with Director Sheri Speede, who he's known for a long time.
