June 13th is a big deal for the sanctuary. On June 13, 2008, seven chimpanzees arrived to Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest from the Buckshire Corporation after decades of use as biomedical research subjects.
Negra was the oldest of that group of seven, and we celebrate her birthday on that day each year to acknowledge the new beginning for her and her six friends. Negra quickly became known as the Queen of the sanctuary due to her status in the group, so we are calling this debut event The Queen’s Brunch.
In addition to Negra’s birthday and the 12-year arrival anniversary, Honey B, one of the three chimpanzees who arrived just last summer from Wildlife Waystation, is turning 31 on June 11th. So, we will also be celebrating her birthday and the new beginning for her, Mave, and Willy B.
So much to celebrate! We hope you can all join us.
