Adorable baby chimpanzees which have been rescued from the dangers of illegal wildlife trade are clearly enjoying their second chance at life. With big grins on their faces, the chimps - one of them orphaned - play with staff at the special sanctuary, grooming their carers and holding them tight in an embrace.
But life was never so easy for these youngsters. These babies are now living on Ngamba Island on Lake Victoria, Uganda - an island which is home to 45 chimpanzees saved from bushmeat and pet trades. SEE OUR COPY FOR MORE.
