A motherboard crew traveled to remote Liberia to discover 'Monkey Island,' an area inhabited solely by former lab tested chimpanzees who survived disease and two civil wars. They go to the island, interview the locals and meet the scientists involved in the testing facility 25 years ago.
Betsy Brotman, an American researcher who spent 30 years conducting tests on chimps, recounts her time in Libera, including Charles Taylor's brutal civil war. She also states that animal rights activists were right, "chimpanzees really shouldn’t be used in experiments".
