Eugene opened Chimp Eden in 2006 in collaboration with the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI). As the managing director of Chimp Eden and the rescue director of JGI South Africa, Eugene has focused Chimp Eden's efforts on rescuing chimps from areas where no one else is willing to venture, such as war-torn countries like Sudan and Angola. Personally rescuing the chimps, Eugene brings them back to Chimp Eden, where he takes on the role of caretaker. Notable Chimpanzees, are the Agressive Elder, Jao, Eugene's Best friend, Cozi, and the roudy Xeina.
