Bushmeat, bullets and bananas - on the Cameroon frontline with the Great Apes

Rare appearance for Ape Action Africa's Rachel Hogan, on working at the frontline of Great Ape conservation in West Africa.

Ape Action Africa's principle Rachel Hogan (originally from Birmingham) makes a rare appearance in Britain to talk about her heart-wrenching job working with critically endangered gorillas and chimps in Cameroon, where she and her team rescue and rehabilitate primates from the illegal bushmeat trade and pet industry - negotiating with politicians, assisting in confiscations and hand-rearing orphans, many with severe injuries from the bullets that killed their mothers, all emotionally traumatised after losing their families. Come and hear Rachel's inspiring talk on how she and her team offer Cameroon's primates a ray of hope.
