Supporter Kathy Benson and friends have been doing some garage sale shopping for the chimpanzees. Check out Missy playing tether ball with a boat bumber!

Here’s a video of Jamie, Foxie, and Jody checking out a stuffed animal chimpanzee – and letting the toy know who’s in charge! –Sarah
Already, we are seeing big differences in the chimpanzees’ personalities. Until now, Foxie had been fairly quiet and reserved. But today, she surprised us by playing a full-fledged game of chase. It is possible that this is the farthest she’s been able to run in her entire life. J.B.
Because that’s the way she wants it! Jamie is very human-centered. When we clean the enclosures, she cleans on the other side. When we sit down to take a break, she sits near us. When we go to take photos of the chimps…all we get is Jamie. Not that we mind, but we are anxious to introduce you to the rest of the group. We promise we’ll write more about the other chimpanzees, as soon as Jamie lets us. J.B.
My, how time is flying here! It feels like we’ve been caring for the Cle Elum Seven for years! At the same time, we’re learning new things about them (and surely they’re learning new things about us) every day. Foxie and Jamie are almost always up for interacting with us, even if it’s just sitting quietly together in the sunshine. Here are a few portraits so you can get to know their faces.
PS. Please support our work so we can continue to provide top notch care to these amazing folks!
