It is with deep sadness that we share that our sweet chimpanzee Pozna passed away in mid-September.

Pozna had rapidly developed a rare, untreatable condition. We performed diagnostic medical exams and emergency surgery in hopes we could help her, but her illness proved too extensive. In collaboration with our veterinarian Dr. Dan Bowling, veterinarians Dr. Elizabeth Hammond from Lion Country Safari, Dr. Sarah Evans Murray from Miami Vet Specialists, and Dr. Woodrow Friend from Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital and veterinary assistants Elizabeth Zambrano from Hope Spay Neuter Clinic, Kaitlyn Wooton from Animal Hospital of Nicholasville, and Kimmie Phelps from Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital worked tirelessly to help us respond to Pozna's medical emergency. We appreciate all their efforts and expertise during this crisis.

Twenty-two year old Pozna was a sweet and happy chimpanzee and always seemed to have a little smile on her face. Her intelligence and curious personality made her stand out to many of us. She loved her life of leisure, and she was an expert (and frequent) nest builder. When she wasn't relaxing in her favorite playroom, she was making us laugh with her silly faces and playful stomping and chasing games. Our hearts are shattered that this beautiful soul had to leave us so early. We are all so lucky that we got to know and love this special girl and will miss her deeply every day.

Rest in Peace, dear Pozna. You were so loved.
