Chimps Go Outdoors for the First Time!

On Jan. 16, 2018, former research chimpanzees who had spent their entire lives in inside/outside cages explored an outdoor forest habitat for the first time at the Project Chimps sanctuary.

One group of six males and one group of nine females, all formerly used in biomedical research in laboratories, were released at separate times to freely explore a six-acre, forested habitat in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Georgia.

Thanks to Project Chimps' founding board member Marsha Perelman, American Anti-Vivisection Society, Solid Security Perimeter Solutions, and National Anti-Vivisection Society for making it possible!
