It’s the day after the 2015 HOOT! Gala fundraising event and we couldn’t be more thrilled! The event was such a huge success and we cannot possibly begin to thank all of you enough for your continued support for the Cle Elum Seven!! It is truly a blessing to know there are so many people that make up this sanctuary family! It’s clear that people near and far have fallen in love with these seven chimpanzees! I’ll leave the details of the event for Diana to write about on the blog later this week. Be sure to tune in for highlights from the big event!
Here are some moments we captured of each of the chimps from today.
Negra sat on the bridge in the Playroom looking toward the window that overlooks the neighbor’s farm.
Jamie photo bombed this picture of Negra, as she made her way down the railing to where I was standing taking photos (I didn’t notice she had done that until reviewing the pictures).
Jamie on her way down the railing.
Jamie checked out her surroundings on Young’s Hill.
Annie spent some time grooming her leg while in the Greenhouse this afternoon before walking in the tall grass on Young’s Hill.
Missy enjoyed a cup of water…
…and then groomed herself.
Jody took full advantage of the quite afternoon and warm temperature to rest before going back out on Young’s Hill.
Foxie lounged with one of her troll dolls on her belly before making her way up to the new climbing structure on Young’s Hill.
Burrito made his way back toward the Greenhouse from the newest climbing structure by walking bipedal in the tall grass.
