Nicolas Santos, an 8th grade student at St. Luke School, recently collected fire hose for the chimpanzees. Nicolas’ parents, Erica (a former CSNW board member) and Enjay (a former CSNW volunteer), gathered up the family to help deliver it to the sanctuary.
The response to his project was so overwhelming that they had to rent a U-Haul trailer.
Already, Chad and I have began to hang some of it up in the new greenhouses, which are just weeks away from completion.
By the way – we’re very grateful to the donors who purchased the safety harness and lifeline from our wish list. Look at the view from up top! Just don’t look down.
As Nicolas mentioned in his flyer, chimpanzees use fire hose in a number of different ways.
They walk across it:
They climb across it:
They swing on it:
They lounge on it:
They…do whatever this is:
Occasionally, they even wear it:
Thanks, Nicolas, for helping us enrich the chimps’ home! Honey B, Mave, Willy B, and the “Lucky Six” are going to love it.
