I don’t know what it was – the weather, the shed being built, or new-found stardom for the Cle Elum Seven, but the chimpanzees were SO playful today. Jamie was sporting a shirt and her tutu for most of the day, and I saw each of the chimpanzees playing at some point. I was able to catch a few photos. The one of Jamie hanging is so precious to me – she reminds me of a little girl. Of course, she’s not a little girl – she’s ony a few years younger than me, but perhaps today, for whatever reason, she felt young again. (For a bit of background on the chimpanzees wearing clothing, please see this blog post).

Behold the shed
Convenient storage (for blankets, enrichment, etc) is at a serious premium at the sanctuary. So, we are really, really excited about the donated shed being built today! Jim (who donated all of the materials and carpentry skills) and Brian are spending the day working on constructing it right outside the kitchen of the sanctuary building. They couldn’t have picked a nicer day to work outside.
I doubt the chimpanzees were excited about the shed, but they sure were in good moods today – I’ll post some photos of them playing after I serve dinner 🙂
