About Me

I arrived at Save the Chimps after a legal tug-of-war between a now-shuttered breeding compound in Missouri and PETA. After one year of being hidden in a basement cage, I was brought to Save the Chimps and released to an outdoor play yard. I didn’t hesitate to explore both my indoor bedroom and outdoor play yard, climbing through the tunnel between them as well as climbing to the top of the play yard for a view of my surroundings. It’s been some time since I’ve seen other chimpanzees and I greeted my neighbors with curiosity. I can choose whether to be inside or outside and I’m making up for lost time by enjoying the summer breeze and soaking up the Florida sunshine on the upper levels of the play yard.
