Yesterday, the Seattle Times published a great article about CSNW online. It will also appear in the print version of the Seattle Times Pacific NW magazine this Sunday. Please share it widely if you can – we are so grateful to writer Sandi Doughton and photographer Alan Berner for giving the sanctuary and the movement to rescue and retire primates such great coverage.
This morning, the chimps took to the foggy, rain-soaked hill to play and explore.
As usual, Missy led the group outside but quickly sped away and forged her own path across the fire hose vines.
Annie struggled to keep up since she is reluctant to walk quadrupedally (on all fours) outside – especially in wet grass.
Burrito had spent the early part of the morning engaged in wild and varied dominance displays, which did not exactly endear him to the rest of the group. As a result, the girls gave him a chance to cool off for a bit by himself. Here he is wadging what was left of his breakfast chow bag and probably wondering what everyone is so upset about.
Jody managed to keep the Thanksgiving buffet alive for another day after discovering some leftover green beans on the hill.
Foxie kept her Strawberry Shortcake doll close by throughout the morning adventure.
