I send my apologies to our supporters, followers, well-wishers, and passersby of today’s blog. Today is the first time staff had a meeting since a couple weeks before Jamieween. Usually, I can put together a blog and photos after the meetings, but since some time has passed since our last meeting, there was a lot to discuss. So please excuse today’s blog as it is really several ideas I had today to write about, but wasn’t able to let any of them to come to full fruition.
Willy B seemed a tad annoyed when I thought I would write a blog about him since it has been a little while
So I let that idea go.
Mave inspired the thought of trying to write about chimpanzee facial expressions
But a blog like that would require a little more time to do it justice.
Jamie carrying her boot onto Young’s Hill
And Cy carrying his magazine onto the Bray
I was going to have a montage of enrichment items the chimps bring with them into the outdoor enclosures, but I couldn’t find anybody else and I didn’t have time to go through our archives.
Rayne getting low to get a better look at the approaching stranger danger (really it was Jenna in her street closes that threw Rayne off)
And Jamie and Burrito going around Young’s Hill with caregivers Grace, Jenna, and Diana
Which in turn ended up Burrito going around Young’s Hill with me
Those last few sets of photos inspired me to think of writing a blog on chimpanzee/caregiver interactions/relationships. But again, time stopped me.
Maybe those topics will be covered someday, however today isn’t that day unfortunately.
And thank you to everyone that joined us during last nights online gathering for Comfort & Joy! If you couldn’t make it, you can watch the event on YouTube. And if you thought that was the end of the auction, it’s not! You still have time to bid on your favorite items until November 18th!
