Go Annie!

September 24th, 2011 by Diana

Annie followed Missy right out this morning and made it to a couple of the climbing structures.

and Missy showed Annie the greatness of the hammock

Annie didn’t quite make it over to the gate to get breakfast served outside before she decided to go back in, but we had breakfast for her there too.

    Moment by moment, day by day. Someday we’ll be reminiscing about the days when the chimps were afraid to stay outside for long.

    That’s my girl! I think you said she spent quite a bit of time in the hammock on the first day out. I remember thinking it was just what I would do.

    These are wonderful photos! I love seeing Annie out on the hill, and I LOVE that she had the choice to eat breakfast outside or inside….wherever she wanted! :) The caregivers at CSNW are the BEST!!

    I can’t even imagine the feeling of being surrounded by caging for decades and then given the choice to go outside with all the space in the world. It feels almost agoraphobic, but with Missy (who has truly shined this week) helping, they’ll all be on Young’s Hill. There was a chimp, at Save the Chimps, that took a year to walk onto the grass and out onto the island.

    I’d love to see a picture of the gate feedings.
