Ain’t No Party Like a Primate Party!

Laura Clifford March 04, 2017

If you follow us on Facebook you have probably noticed that we love throwing parties for our chimps! Any time someone has a birthday, or there is a special holiday to celebrate, we like to do it up big and throw an exciting party full of fun enrichment! For birthday parties we try to have themed parties based on the personality of the birthday boy or girl. Recently Martina had a jungle safari themed party with lots of giant stuffed animals, and Victoria had a tea and crumpets party complete with hot tea. It might seem silly to throw a birthday party for a chimpanzee, but we want to celebrate them any way we can, as often as we can!  Many of the chimps in our care come from truly heartbreaking backgrounds. They have had so much taken from them that we can never give back, so we want to make the rest of their lives as enjoyable as possible. Parties are a small way for us to add to that enjoyment, and hearing their excited screams and pant hoots when they walk into a party makes it all worthwhile


Of course, none of this would be possible without support from our generous donors and volunteers! Our party sponsors provide the funds to purchase supplies and toys for each party, and our volunteers help us decorate and make each party special. Thank you to everyone who has sponsored a birthday or holiday party this year. If you would like to sponsor an upcoming party you can donate here, and specify in the comments section that you would like your donation to be used for a birthday/holiday party. Thank you for helping us celebrate our chimps, and for loving them as much as we do!
