Save the Chimps is hosting a Sunset Cocktail event on Wednesday, January 17, 2024 from 4:00-6:00 pm. As our sanctuary is normally closed to the public, this is a unique and exclusive opportunity to visit the sanctuary and meet our senior staff while enjoying the beautiful Florida sunset. Hear from our new Director of Veterinary Services Dr. Lisa Lewis, who brings over 20 years of experience to Save the Chimps, and our Chief Executive Officer Ana Paula Tavares about this complex and wonderful species and what it takes to care for over 220 chimpanzees. Learn about our veterinary services and daily enrichment offerings such as painting, foraging and social activities. View paintings created by our residents while enjoying live music, an open bar, and hors d’oeuvres. Space is limited so claim your spot now!
