Thanks for all the concern from supporters. We wanted to let you all know we are okay and still far from the Jolly Mountain burning in the Cle Elum area. Check out Diana’s post from Saturday for more information.
We haven’t had a lot change since her post, so thankfully the sanctuary is still safe and out of harms way. There has been a lot of smoke affecting all of the Pacific Northwest and beyond, but the chimps have been doing fine with it. The chimps spend a lot of time indoors anyway, but are choosing the ventilated space maybe a little bit more than usual. We have been adding supplements to help bolster their immune system and have been monitoring their behavior for any respiratory changes. Thanks to all who have reached out to us and we are thinking positive thoughts for our community in this stressful time.
