A new beginning
As the world’s largest chimpanzee sanctuary, Chimp Haven is home to more than 300 chimps formerly used in biomedical research. Here on 200 acres of beautiful, forested sanctuary, they finally get to just be chimps and enjoy many of the experiences they would have in the wild.
Fresh, healthy meals, expert medical care, daily enrichment, large social groups, and the freedom to choose just how they want to spend their time. At Chimp Haven, they’re living the good life – or, as we like to call it, the Chimp Life.
“Pretty well perfect”
“I saw for myself in the short time I’ve been here that they were moving around in small groups, that some of them chose to be inside where it was warmer, some of them chose to sit on the platforms they have, some of them wanted to be out in the forest and climb the trees. And so for chimpanzees in captivity, it’s pretty well perfect.”
Meet the Chimps gives viewers unparalleled access into the lives of the more than 300 chimpanzees who call Chimp Haven home.
