Charles Taylor Award Chimps

The Chimps of Fauna Sanctuary

The Fauna chimphouse is many things: a rollicking retirement home, a rehabilitation centre, a maximum security prison, and a Montreal deli at the lunchtime rush. One of my goals while writing this book was to bring the reader deep inside the chaos and cacophony of the chimphouse, to help them feel the constant surprise, anxiety, and helplessness Gloria Grow herself feels as she looks after 13 traumatized chimpanzees.
