Easter 2017 Part II

April 17th, 2017 by Katelyn

The day after the big celebration the chimpanzees have been napping, resting and eating light, recovering from yesterday’s all day party! As I mentioned in yesterday’s blog, here are a few photos from the first Young’s Hill forage of the year (aka Easter Party #2):

    I know you have more photos from the party, can’t we them all?! : ) The video was a great ending. Silly Burrito, who knew a leftover piñata could be so much fun and also fill in as a fabulous party hat!

    Seriously, I will never tire from seeing photos of your parties. I feel so lucky to have enjoyed two whole days worth. Best Easter ever.

      Kathleen, sometimes it’s ridiculous how many photos we have! We spend a significant amount of time, especially with parties, taking, sorting, editing and *gasp* deleting them. Even we never get enough of photos of the chimps! 😉

Opening up your site is my favorite time of the day, first thing every single morning–I am so glad I happened upon that ffirst article about Foxy so many years ago which led me to your site I never knew anything about rescued/retired laboratory chimps being brought to such a wonderful place These seven are so lucky and I hooe plans are underway to rescue more. They are waiting
