In yesterday’s blog post Elizabeth talked about what sanctuary means to the chimpanzees of Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest, particularly Negra. As caregivers we try to provide an environment that allows individuals the opportunity to enjoy the life that sanctuary provides in the manner that most appeals to each.
These are just a few of the many different favorite things of the chimpanzees, just a few of the ways they each make sanctuary their own. If I ask Google to define sanctuary here is the result:
sanc·tu·ar·y ?saNG(k)CHo?o?er?/ noun
1. a place of refuge or safety.
2. a nature reserve.
3. a holy place; a temple or church
I don’t know about you, but I think that Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest has got this definition down.
