How is it possible?! December birthday celebrations are upon us! Happy Birthday, December friends! We are so grateful for you and hope your special days are filled with magic and wonder.
With so many residents who call the sanctuary home, December is a rare instance in which you folks aren’t sharing your birthday month with a sanctuary birthday twin. For now, April and December are the only months we don’t have birthdays or anniversaries here at the sanctuary, but you know the chimpanzees, they (and we!) always have reason to celebrate, thanks to you.
And of special note, is that you *do* share your birthday month with a member of our extended sanctuary family, Foxie’s daughter, Angie (the 1st), who will be turning 34 on December 21st. Angie has a wonderful home at Save the Chimps in Florida (as do six more of the now adult children of Annie, Jody and Negra) and according to their website, she resides in the same family as Annie’s son, Virgil!

Angie’s mama, Foxie:
If ever there were a being full of magic and wonder, it’s Foxie. And while December falls in a season that means a lot of different things to a lot of different people, we want you to know how much we appreciate and celebrate you and we hope that each of you has a day full of Foxie-style enchantment and joy. Do a pirouette, hang upside down, go on an adventure, play bite a friend (well, okay, that last one might not go over so well, but hey, it’s your birthday, celebrate how you like).
