Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest is NOT open to the public and, as a sanctuary with a focus on the direct care of the sanctuary residents, we do not wish to be "open" on a regular basis.
However, we do want to provide a chance for current donors, for a small registration fee, to come see the sanctuary they support in person, while respecting the limits of our small staff and commitment to not disrupting the lives of the chimpanzees in a negative way.
Great news! We will be resuming our small visitor program this summer (2023). Not so great news if you are reading this now - all visit days are currently full.
We emailed a private online registration form to donors in early June who had made a $100 or more donation in the past 18 months, and the small number of summer visit days filled up immediately. We know there are so many amazing people who wish to visit in person, and we're sorry that we simply cannot accommodate everyone.
Because not everyone will be able to visit the sanctuary, we go above and beyond by share the lives of the chimpanzees (and the cattle sometimes too!) through stories, photos, and videos every single day on the blog.
Thank you for your interest in meeting the chimpanzees! Learn other ways you can help.
