Volunteer caregiver Stephanie throws the best parties for the chimpanzees, and today was no different. She showed up for her volunteer shift this morning with her arms full of pinatas (nine of them!), plastic margarita glasses, and lots of fresh produce for a Cinco de Mayo party. We filled the margarita glasses with fruit smoothie and set them around the greenhouse. We decorated Young’s Hill with the pinatas (each filled with a few nuts and berries) and scattered a fruit salad forage.
We brought our cameras to the Out of the Box auction last night, and they didn’t make it back to the chimp house in time for the party, so we snapped a few photos with Debbie’s phone.
Jody, Burrito, and Jamie (L-R):
Jody helped herself to a “margarita”:
and then another
We weren’t able to get many good photos of the chimps on Young’s Hill since we didn’t have our telephoto lens, but I love that these two photos, taken just after we opened the door to the hill, show all seven chimpanzees.
Thanks again to Steph for bringing the party to CSNW today!
