CHIMPANZEES SURVIVE ON HANDOUTS FROM FARMER

The chimps, originally from Liberia, seem to have slipped through the conservation net but Mayar feeds them twice a day. Chimpanzees across West Africa are classified among the most endangered species because of man-made threats like logging and hunting. (AP Photo/Boris Heger)
