Introducing Tuffy and Tiffany!

We are thrilled to introduce you to our two newest residents, Tuffy and Tiffany! Tiffany is a 13-year-old female and Tuffy is a 20-year-old male. They came to us from a private owner only a few days ago, but are already adjusting quickly to their new, sunny Florida home. It is clear that Tiffany and Tuffy are very close friends, and they have had one another for reassurance and comfort along this journey. They were slightly uncertain of their surroundings when they first entered their new home, as most chimpanzees are, but within minutes they were relaxing in the sunshine and excitedly greeting their new caregivers. They are curious about their surroundings and have been eagerly exploring their new home.


We are honored to have Tiffany and Tuffy entrusted in our care, and we have made a number of preparations to ensure they receive a soft landing into sanctuary life. We have begun tracking their enrichment preferences and monitoring their behavior in order to plan for future social introductions and to ensure we meet their every need.


Ultimately, Tiffany and Tuffy will have the opportunity to live on a large island habitat where they can express natural behaviors with their new chimpanzee social group. We are here to help them find their way, and we are able to look to them for cues every day to show us if they are ready to enter their new lives with baby steps or by leaps and bounds. Either way, we will be here to support them through every step along the way.

Help support Tuffy and Tiffany in their new forever-home at Save the Chimps.
