About Me

Ernesta was rescued from a biomedical research laboratory and sent to the Wildlife Waystation, a now-closed refuge in California. In 2004 she surprised the Waystation when she gave birth to her daughter, Magic as a result of a failed vasectomy in Jeff. Although Ernesta did not have the opportunity to be raised by her own mother, she is a loving a devoted mom to Magic. In 2019, Wildlife Waystation closed causing nearly 480 animals to need to be re-homed, including 42 chimpanzees. Ernesta is among the final seven to be re-homed and is making her way to Florida where she will be provided lifelong sanctuary and care, enjoying the sunshine with her family at Save the Chimps.
