A Day We Will Never Forget

On October 26, 2010, the St. Lucie Board of County Commissioners paid tribute to the late Dr. Carole Noon by approving Save the Chimps’ petition to rename a road after Dr. Noon.  The Commission took the time to air our newly completed video of Save the Chimps, narrated by Angelica Huston, as well as present the street sign to Save the Chimps.  As Save the Chimps’ staff, volunteers, and vendors approach the sanctuary, they now turn down “Carole Noon Lane,” a daily reminder of the drive, spirit, and accomplishments of our beloved founder.

“All they need from us is a chance. If we meet them halfway, just give them space and freedom, then they recover on their own.”
