We’ve discovered that the chimps really like watching us play with iPads and iPhones, especially with the app “Photobooth”, where they can see themselves. So we had a thought that it would be fun to have a used one specifically for the chimps. This is not a new idea- there is a program called Apps for Apes, but the focus is specifically on orangutans. But we are sure Jamie would be super pleased to have her own! So, if you have an iPad and/or an iPhone and you are planning to upgrade to a new one, please send us your old one! J.B. is planning to make a secure, chimp-proof box for it so we can safely let the chimpanzees touch the screen through the caging. In addition, we could also use the iPad at tabling events so people could check out our website and the blog. We are fairly certain we could find a lot of uses for an iPad, but the chimps would get top priority, of course!
If you don’t have an iPad, you can help us out by donating protein powder for the chimps’ morning smoothie. Here’s a link to buy it directly from our Amazon Wishlist.
