Hope. Love. Home... Sanctuary

From the CSNW Blog

Serious business

As you may already know, the sanctuary has an enrichment calendar that we follow in order to enhance the lives of the chimpanzees on a daily basis. In the morning when we clean each area, we may put out lots of paper for them to nest in, or maybe we will put out all the small toys from the enrichment bins in the kitchen. Some days we might put out the ever popular troll scarves! Yesterday was a troll scarf day and first thing this morning we caught Jamie looking quite serious in a knitted blue troll scarf. Upon further cleaning inspection, we found 3 or 4 more troll scarves in an intricate nest she had assembled in the front rooms. web_Jamie_troll_scarf_pr_aw_IMG_9446 web_Jamie_focus_troll_scarf_pr_aw_IMG_9447 A quick reminder that Great Apes Giving Day starts tonight at 9:00 p.m. PST (midnight eastern time).
