Our residents celebrate enrichment parties throughout the year and this month’s celebration is Bananaversary! It is the anniversary of the day our founder, Dr. Carole Noon was handed the keys to the Coulston Foundation, rescuing the 266 chimpanzees residing there. It remains the largest single chimpanzee rescue in history. We celebrate Bananaversary with what else – bananas, of course! Yellow streamers, banana themed decor, bananas hidden across the islands, and banana enrichment such as banana chips. 

  • $25 can purchase dried fruit for the parties
  • $50 can purchase a variety of mixed nuts for the parties
  • $150 can sponsor an entire island party!
  • Any amount can be put toward enrichment to brighten the chimpanzees’ lives

    On behalf of the more than 200 chimpanzees in our care, thank you for your compassion and generosity.
