For many years a wonderful supporter from Ireland, Joan O’Flaherty, has been sponsoring two days of sanctuary annually for the chimpanzees in memory of her beloved parents, Ned and Noreen O’Flaherty. Ned and Noreen were great lovers of our fellow animals, the amazing world we share with them, and were passionate about how we can better care for and respect both. Today would have been their wedding anniversary.
Joan, thank you so much for allowing us the opportunity to share in your memories and celebration of your parents. We are so touched to be part of remembering Ned and Noreen and the beautiful legacy you keep alive. They, and you, continue to make a lasting difference in the chimps’ lives. Lives that the chimps continue to grow, thrive and surprise us in every day and with each passing year.
Negra, more adventurous than ever:
Jody, whose safe heart now has room to all she loves and all those she looks out for:
Jamie and Foxie, patrolling their home, keeping their family safe, braver with each passing year:
