100 hundred years of invasive experiments on chimpanzees used in biomedical research came to an end in 2015 when the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service designated captive chimps as endangered. But even though testing stopped, hundreds of chimps still live in labs because there’s no place for them to go. In this three-part story, WUTC's Will Davis takes us to Project Chimps, a sanctuary in the Blue Ridge Mountains that’s making a home for chimpanzees retired from research.
Nickajack Cave is one of the most important caves in the Tennessee Valley for biologists because it’s a maternity roost for the federally endangered Gray Bat. If you’re wondering how many bats are in the cave, WUTC’s Will Davis has the answer.
This year marks the 85th anniversary of the signing of the Tennessee Valley Authority Act, and to celebrate, TVA invited the public to tour some of their hydro facilities, including Chickamauga Dam. WUTC’s Will Davis took a tour.
