Born 1989 in a laboratory
Honey B arrived with Mave and Willy B on August 18, 2019 after Wildlife Waystation in California announced it was closing and searching for homes for all of their residents.
Honey B was born at the Laboratory for Experimental Medicine and Surgery in Primates (LEMSIP) to her mother, Missy, who has lived at Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest since 2008. Honey B was taken from Missy within hours after being born, and we look forward to reuniting them!
When LEMSIP closed in 1996, Honey B went to Wildlife Waystation along with over 30 other chimpanzees.
We’re still getting to know her. We know that many of the caregivers at Wildlife Waystation were very fond of her and described her as very smart. She loves the upper floor we call the mezzanine, and she scoots herself around on any toy with wheels. She likes to groom her caregivers and especially loves finding scabs. So far she’s been staying out of drama and is letting Willy B and Mave do any territorial displaying.
