Sheila and Dave Siddle
At an age when most people contemplate retirement, Sheila and David Siddle’s lives changed when they nursed a badly wounded chimpanzee back to health. By electing to help a single chimp, the Siddles' farm suddenly became the “go to” home for dozens of injured and unwanted chimps from all over the world, forcing them to convert their cattle ranch into the Chimfunshi Wildlife Orphanage. Over 125 chimpanzees now reside at the sanctuary—not to mention dozens of monkeys, parrots, birds, antelope and one house-broken
hippopotamus—making Chimfunshi one of the largest such refuges in the world.
Learn about Billy, a very special friend and one of the most extraordinary animals who ever joined the Chimfunshi family.
