Cecilia, first chimpanzee released by Habeas Corpus

“Next week, the first chimpanzee in the world who has been released from captivity in a zoo through a human legal instrument, Habeas Corpus, will arrive at Guarulhos airport, in São Paulo, from Mendoza, Argentina.

Cecília, who is the only survivor of a group of four chimpanzees who lived in the Mendoza Zoo, Argentina, already has a reserved space in the Great Primates Sanctuary of Sorocaba, affiliated to the GAP Project, where she must live the rest of her days, with the company of other 50 chimpanzees.”
