A lot is changing around here! It is exciting change, but still an adjustment. We are learning that flexibility is key while the humans and chimps are learning a new routine. Even though it is just 3 new chimps, a lot of work has gone into this. We are getting to know 3 new chimps, while still devoting ourselves to the 7. We have new checks to do, spaces to organize, and old & new volunteers to train. With the new chimps comes a need for more fresh produce and toys. If you are ever curious about how to help, check out our amazon wish list. It is an easy way to help the chimps and we always need Safeway gift cards!
The 7 have been wonderful through this process with the new chimps arriving. They have been curious and as patient as they can be. Though the suspense of hoping to meet their new neighbors has brought some tension to the group. Overall, everyone is adjusting well and the 7 have been able to keep most of their days normal.

All in all I think chimps and humans are very ready to get these intros started!
