While Chimp Haven works hard to provide everything a chimpanzee could want in retirement, perhaps the most important element is the freedom to choose. Whether it’s outside, sunbathing on their favorite platform, inside napping with a friend, practicing their Positive Reinforcement Training with staff, or charming their favorite caregiver for some juice, the chimps run the show here at Chimp Haven. That’s why we like to call life at the sanctuary the “Chimp Life.”
Here, the chimps get the freedom to choose how, where, and with whom they spend their days. They’ve earned it.
