After yesterday’s light rainfall, Central Washington is positively bursting with green today! The majority of the deciduous trees seemed to unfurl their leaves overnight and I even got a whiff of cherry blossoms as I pulled into the parking lot this morning. This fresh wave of spring and a party for the chimps was the absolute best way to celebrate Love a Chimpanzee Day!
Over in the Phase 1 part of the building, Willy B, Mave and Honey B were treated to a special “Love a Chimpanzee” lunch that featured fresh coconut, an all time favorite! Honey B was seen cleverly stomping on her coconut chunk to get it to loosen up. For the 7 chimps on the other side of the building, watermelon bowls were a big hit on Young’s Hill and the most fun part of the day to photograph.
Foxie and Negra:
Missy (not pictured) was zooming around the greenhouse collecting whole tomatoes as fast as she possibly could. Happy Love a Chimpanzee Day!
Arlene and Michael says
Looks like so much fun and sounds like a good time was had by all. Those watermelon bowls look so appetizing and really popular LOL Love that last picture of Jody and Burrito:) Happy Love a Chimpanzee day to all of you!!! Thank you for all that you do.
Linda C says
Nothing can hold a candle to Jo’s triumphant face on a forage day!
And Neggie out enjoying her cabin…
Thank you, Monica!
As always, Love A Chimpanzee Day does not disappoint! Monica, thanks for bringing me so much joy today too. Foxie, Negra, Burrito, Annie, and three-fisted-Jamie (with watermelon spilling out from everywhere) all look over the moon with their watermelon, but yes, Jody’s expression is as good as it gets.

3 bowls was my absolute favorite. No surprise it was Jamie–she’s so-so-sooooooooo smart
