After the loss of Jody, words have been hard for me to find. Sometimes, though, I think that we don’t need words- just quality time. Quality time with our friends, family, and loved ones to get us through the tough times.
Since last week, I’ve had the chance to film some videos of little moments between the chimps on both sides of the building. I hope you enjoy these moments as much as I have and I hope they warm your heart like they have mine.
P.S: Don’t forget that we have our virtual visit with Cy’s group coming up on Sunday, May 21st at 1:00pm PST! Register now to save your spot and submit your questions for us to answer during the live-stream.

Thank you, Grace!
Man, Mave really just barged right in there, didn’t she!?
Good to see Beezus fitting in and finding friends. Seems like she’s reading cues better, not coming on so strong and easing up
I’m so happy to see them cavorting in the grass and sun and with each other and Willy B’s group engaging so happily as they do. Thanks for these great videos and pics!

it is great to see this video. what is it really like without Jody though?
Since I have only been following the sanctuary for a short time, there is much I have missed. With Jody’s passing, I decided that I really want to know more about her and all of the other chimps. So today I began watching the blogs all the way back to the very beginning. I’m only a few short weeks into their arrival at this point, but you can really see the stark differences in their appearances from then until now. At least for everyone except Negra, who looks pretty much the same. But what is really nice to see is how quickly they embraced sanctuary life, which was long overdue if that’s the best that can be done for them at this point. I’m looking forward to eveything I’ll learn along the way until I catch back up to the present.
Wow… Jamie really scored…… OH NO :face_with_monocle:look out Burrito there’s a Troll behind you:astonished:……
Linda C ….Don’t forget us!……This weekend I wanted to try that Almond cake…Temp and Time needed…… I’m so tempted to throw some cranberries in there you just don’t know

beautiful video and pictures, Grace. thank you. 🙂
could not agree more.
I read yesterday’s blog and I wanted to test out that upside down smiley to get you a heart……:grimacing:……Nope
Watching all that fun was fun!! Honey B and Lucky had a massive play session. I’m so happy seeing Lucky playing. Rayne laying next to the grooming train was too funny.
What could better than Burrito and Negra partaking in goofiness?! Thanks for letting us see that life does carry on, even through the sorrow. Friends, forages, and laughter, one day at a time…
i know the two groups of chimps are separated, but with the windows and layout and movement to different areas, can they ever see each other at any points in the day? just curious……thanks!
Linda C says
I think they can hear each other through the howdy door, but can only see each other if they’re both outside at the same time. Interesting times ahead!
Hi, Regina! Yes- the two groups can see each other through windows, especially when the nine have access to the chute, and the nine can see the seven when they are on the hill. Linda is also correct that they can hear each other through the howdy door (and also just in general, since they can be quite noisy 🙂 )!
