Blood Island

Blood Island

Deep in the heart of Liberia’s jungles, hundreds of chimpanzees were taken from the wild. Captured, bred, and infected with hepatitis, our closest animal relatives were to unlock the mysteries of human diseases.

But what started in the 1970s as an ambitious medical experiment took deeper and darker turns through the decades.

Gripping to the core, Blood Island tells the powerful story of the chimpanzees, their captors and the people still fighting to save them.
