Since 2000, Gedeon has been following the organisation "HELP Congo", in its activities against illegal chimpanzee trade. A first film 'Born to be Free', covered the first successful attempt of this team to reintroduce chimpanzees raised in captivity back to the forest. Today, we are looking at the way this population of chimps have adapted to their new life in the wild, how they cope with the other chimps in the forest and what relationship and social structure they have built.
The English version follows the French version in the video below at 52'16".
