Born 1989 in a laboratory
Mave arrived with Willy B and Honey B on August 18, 2019 after Wildlife Waystation in California announced it was closing and searching for homes for all of their residents.
Mave was born at the Laboratory for Experimental Medicine and Surgery in Primates (LEMSIP). When LEMSIP closed in 1996, Mave went to Wildlife Waystation along with over 30 other chimpanzees.
We’re still getting to know Mave, but she’s already surprising us. She is silly and playful and seemed to immediately relax into her new home at the sanctuary. She plays rough with Willy B and is seeks out Honey B and Willy B for long grooming sessions.
