Chimp Haven at Home – Past Recordings
Join Positive Reinforcement Training (PRT) Technician Jordan as she explores how PRT encourages chimps to participate in their own care, provides enrichment and strengthens the bonds between chimps and their caregivers.
In recognition of World Chimpanzee Day we’re focusing on the chimpanzees’ wild counterparts. Learn about the global issues that are threatening their survival and how making small changes and raising awareness can help save this keystone species.
While Chimp Haven actively takes steps to prevent babies to ensure space at sanctuary is maintained for chimps waiting to retire, occasionally, life finds a way. Learn about the sanctuary’s beloved “oops” babies, the unique process for determining chimpanzee paternity, and the relationships between chimp dads and their youngsters from Chimp Haven’s Attending Veterinarian and Director of Veterinary Care, Dr. Raven Jackson-Jewett (Dr. J).
Join Chimp Haven’s Positive Reinforcement Training Program (PRT) Coordinator Rebekah Lewis for this behind-the-scenes look at training with the chimpanzees. From smarty-pants chimps who keep us on our toes, to amazing physical transformations, sweet, silly moments, and everything in between, explore how PRT helps improve the chimps’ lives and strengthens the bonds between chimps and their caregivers.
What do the chimps like to do for fun? Colony Director Michelle explores the many ways the chimps choose to spend their time, including stories of some of their most unique preferences, habits, and hijinks.
Sweet friendships, bromances, and ever-changing family bonds – learn about how chimpanzee social groups at Chimp Haven allow the chimps to blossom socially, including stories of some of the sanctuary’s most iconic duos and squads.
Join Colony Director Michelle Reininger as we explore some of the sanctuary’s most interesting alphas (male and female!) and dissect what makes a great chimpanzee leader.
In honor of Chimp Haven’s 15-year anniversary, Chimp Haven co-founder Amy Fultz takes us back to the sanctuary’s very first days, including touching stories of the first chimpanzees to explore the forested grounds.
From puzzles, live music, Bollywood, and more, there’s no limit to the lengths our Enrichment Team will go to keep the chimps mentally stimulated and thriving. This webinar explores how we enrich the chimps 365 days per year – including some of our more unique experiments – and why it’s so vital to the chimps’ wellbeing.
With more than 300 unique chimp personalities at Chimp Haven, everyone on staff has a chimp who holds a special place in their heart. But how do the chimps feel about their human caregivers? This webinar explores stories of some of the special bonds between chimps and humans at Chimp Haven, how the chimps’ unique personalities influence how they interact with caregivers, and the many ways these special connections help staff better care for the chimps.
From physical exams to emergency intervention, the Chimp Haven vet team has seen it all. Join us for a behind-the-scenes look at chimpanzee medical care, including personal stories of the vet team’s most interesting cases.
Join Behavior Technician Jordan as she explores the many ways that chimps communicate with each other. From chimp vocalizations, expressions, gestures, and other behaviors, she breaks downs the basics of chimpanzee communication and how Chimp Haven staff use these insights to better understand and care for the chimps.
