The celebrations continue at the sanctuary!
A lot of people have helped make all of the fun happen – including those who gave through our Holiday Gift Store.
Debbie put together a holiday recap of the festivities so far. Watch below. The chimpanzees thank you!
What a great video! Loved seeing Burrito spinning the tree. 😀
REALLY great video. So thrilling to see such festive chimpanzees. Love them so. xoxo
And the stockings stuffed with lunch! The spinning tree with a troll on the very top! All set to a holiday soundtrack of food squeaking/squealing/screaming! Thank you, thank you, to everyone for filling the chimps’ home with such love and wonderment.
Thanks, Katelyn! 🙂

Awesome video Diana!
On behalf of all of us that love these chimps sooooooooooo much, thanks to all of the staff for taking the extra time that we know is required, to put these types of videos together.
They’re the next best thing to being there and maybe someday all of us will get a chance to visit and volunteer for a day at CSNW. Adding that to my Bucket List!! 🙂
Debbie is responsible for the great video 🙂

What a great video ! The Chimps celebrating what they love most, FOOD It’s always heartwarming and tearjerking to me, watching the Chimps ,hoot and hollar ,and pant and scream in Chimp fashion,. They can’t contain themselves. Then again ,coming from chimp kibble to CSNW delightful menus of fruit and vegetables, biscuts, pasta,spaghettie,pomegranates for Burrito,tangerines strung on chirstmas trees, peanut butter in tubes, all the neat things ,the caregivers do to offer them enrichments ,for thier daily lives ,
is just so awesome.
Thank you Diana, for always creating such wonderful videos . We truly do appreciate your fine work,

-Buritto still checking for tree-treats two days later
