Our many thanks to friend of the chimpanzees, Dean Featherstone, who sponsored this day of sanctuary and shared this lovely heartfelt message:
“In honor of all the folks at CSNW, Project Chimps and the caretakers who stayed on at Wildlife Waystation. Independence Day is very important to me. Freedom comes at a cost and is unique to each individual. Having said that, caring people from three points of the Nation’s compass came together to provide a new freedom for the Lucky Six. They all still work to better the lives of all chimpanzees in captivity. (I don’t normally get this mushy, but today is special, lol)”.
