We received a new telephoto camera lens from a wonderful supporter and friend of the chimps. We’re still trying to get the hang of it (it’s heavy!), but we managed to snap a few photos today as the chimps enjoyed a break in the gloomy weather we’ve been having lately. We are so grateful for donations like these that help us share the chimps’ stories with the rest of the world. Thank you Kathy!

I AM HAPPY TO ANNOUNCE THAT THE CHIMPANZEE SANCTUARY NORTHWEST ONLINE STORE IS OPEN!
Blog readers get the first chance to shop!! Just click on the words “online store” above, and you can finish all of your holiday shopping from the convenience of your living room, office, kitchen, or wherever your computer may be. It’s easy, it’s fun, it’s convenient, it’s cool, and it’s all for the best cause – the Cle Elum Seven.

At CSNW, we have a lot to be thankful for this year. To everyone who has supported us and spread the word about the amazing Cle Elum Seven, we cannot thank you enough. You have literally given these seven chimpanzees a second chance at life.
And to the chimpanzees who have allowed us the priveledge of becoming your friends, we are eternally grateful.
To all of our blog readers, we wish you could all be here to celebrate this day with the chimps, but I guess you’ll have to settle for some photos.
Please see Audrey’s comment in the post below this – she and I must have woke up with the same thoughts today!
Today is certainly a day to ponder thankfulness, and there is so much to be thankful for this year. I am personally thankful for the seven chimpanzee people who have come into my life and for all of the amazing human people that have come along with them. It is such a huge benefit to this job to be able to meet such fantastic, compassionate, thoughtful folks. I am thankful to all of you for being a part of my life and, especially, the lives of the seven chimpanzees who are now a part of all of our hearts.
Have a wonderful day.
This morning we put out 7 raisin logs with the chimps’ enrichment. Take a look below to see how many Jamie ended up with!
