"Jim Cronin Memorial"

"Jim Cronin Memorial"
This is in the heart of Monkey World, Dorset. I was bowled over and moved by the bronze. It says such a lot about his love for the creatures, shared by his wife Alison.

Here we see Jim and one of the most famous Monkey World chimps, Charlie, now united by mortality.

This is an incredible place to visit for anyone who has any feelings for apes and monkies who have fallen foul of mistreatment by humans.

A touching sculpture. I can't help feeling that "Monkey World" as a moniker doesn't do the place any favours, but I can't quickly think of any alternative...
