Hi, everybody! My name is Chad and I wanted to very briefly introduce myself today. I promise I will follow up with a more thorough post in the upcoming days (I’m considering this my first practice blog post and not my first official post until I take some photos of my own).
I am currently training to be a staff member here at Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest and will be taking over the reins for Anna, our amazing Chimp House Manager, as she prepares to take maternity leave soon! We should all congratulate Anna for this amazing news!
We should also take this time to congratulate Burrito for being so incredibly strong and patient through his entire recovery process. I know the other caregivers here say it almost everyday, but I can’t help myself in saying it as well. Everyday Burrito continues to recover and act more and more like his old playful, goofy self. So much so today that we decided to give him access to the Greenhouse earlier this afternoon.
As you can see, he was incredible happy to be able to go to an old familiar place, even being sure to bring his sweet potato and pomegranate from lunch with him:
