Sheri Speede

I first met Sheri Speede at a fundraising event organized by Edmund Stone for her chimpanzee sanctuary in Cameroon. I am interested in work like this, and in primatology in general.

Sheri is warm, intelligent and deeply committed to her work. Her compassion and empathy for our closest primate relatives has resulted in easing the lives of chimpanzees orphaned by the hunt for bushmeat, i.e., the flesh of chimps, gorillas, monkeys, etc.

Her book, Kindred Beings, details her struggle to provide a safe place for chimps displaced and mistreated at human hands.

Edmund Stone, my friend and colleague, is to be commended for his hard work to assist her.
