The trailer is set to go – Bell, Millie, Nuri, Scarlett, Shakey, Sinbad the 1st, Tina, Tinker, Walden and Whoppi are coming home!

A few of these new arrivals will be Shakey, Sinbad and Tinker who were wild-caught in Africa – this will be the first time in decades that they’ve had the chance to feel  grass under their feet and the sun on their backs!

Some of you may already know Scarlett through STC’s Adopt-A-Chimp program; she is finally making her way to her “island in the sun.”  What new adventures will she and her best friend Miss Nuri – one of the oldest chimps born in captivity encounter?  We’re excited to find out and of course share with you!

Let’s introduce you to the other chimps.

Bell is daughter to Tinker and was born on September 30, 1999.

Millie is the daughter of Yolanda and Emory and she was born on March 5, 1992.

Tina is sister to Samantha and Venus. She was born on September 7, 1971 at the Southwest Foundation for Biomedical Research. We can’t wait to see her venture out on her new island home!

Walden is a youngster born on June 6, 1997 and Whoopi was born on April 5, 1990.
