  • A fast, interesting read

    Review Saving Manno is Spencer Sekyer's record of the process he went through, ending in 2013, in order to get young Chimp Manno moved from a private zoo in Duhok, Kurdistan into a refuge before he reaches adulthood. Adult Chimps are impossible to rescue. And politics in the Iraq/Turkey/Seria borders are very volatile - getting permission from everyone involved is going to be also almost impossible. But it is something Sekyer is compelled to do. Spencer Sekyer is a high school social studies teacher working in Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada who spends his summers, beginning in 2008, doing volunteer work in third world countries, usually with a school system hosting him as he teaches special classes. His introduction to the intricate process of rescue began in 2009 in Kabal, Afghanistan. Spencer Sekyer met Emma, a large white dog living on the streets and trying to feed herself and her 9 pups. It took a lot of time and money and much help from locals, but Spencer was able to rescue Emma and eventually all of her pups, bringing them into good homes in Canada. But Emma was a walk in the park, compared to a rescue for Manno. I received a free electronic copy of this memoir from Netgalley, Spencer Sekyer, and Simon Schuster. Reading this book was my pleasure, and this review is my honest opinion of this work.

    Thanks for your feedback!
