Answers:
1. Complete this opening passage:
A heartwarming story of recovery; a baby chimpanzee, Nemley Junior, with a great appetite. An astonishing turnaround given that all that he’s been through: poachers killed his mother and the rest of his family, and then sold him to wildlife traffickers.
2. What, according to the reporter, is the best thing for the baby chimpanzee to do now?
He will never make back into the wild, so the best hope is to create bonds with a new family (in captivity).
3. What made the police arrest the traffickers?
The BBC made an undercover investigation and then briefed the police.
4. Why is it important to publicise these arrests?
The message gets out that animal trafficking is no longer a high-profit, low-risk, and that they may even go to jail.
