#chimpsoutdoors

For the first time in their lives 15 former research chimpanzees were given a chance to go outside. And Lance the chimp’s expression says it all ☺️
@projectchimps is doing amazing work building a sanctuary for chimpanzees to just be chimpanzees! By the end of the year their goal is to provide sanctuary to over 60 chimps! 📸 credit: @projectchimps

She climbed a tree! After years in a research facility, alpha female Latricia was the first chimpanzee to climb a tree in our 6-acre outdoor Peachtree Habitat at Project Chimps! See the story on the link in our bio or on our FB or YouTube channels. #latriciachimp #chimpsoutdoors #projectchimps #femalepower Photos by Crystal Alba

It's been rainy here but it eased up enough for the chimps to go outside! Caregiver Holly snapped this pic of Gertie, Latricia and Emma. The chimps are still more comfy climbing the familiar fire hose ropes. #gertiechimp #latriciachimp #emmachimp #chimpanzees #chimpsoutdoors

@Regranned from @projectchimps - Marlon got very playful, displaying at the viewing window during his first time in the outdoor habitat. His familiar chimpanzee caregivers, Kaitlyn and Holly, were on the other side. #chimpsoutdoors #marlonchimp #projectchimps #chimps Photo: Crystal Alba - #regrann

@Regranned from @projectchimps - Patrick (f) and Marlon (r) explore their new outdoor habitat for the 1st time! Going out in the 6-acre forested habitat was scary and exciting (see Patrick's fear grimace) but they were brave! #wedensdaywisdom #projectchimps #chimpanzees #chimpsoutdoors Photo: Crystal Alba - #regrann

Marlon's group of male chimpanzees ventured out in our new, outdoor habitat for the first time. Here Arthur, Josh and Taz explore the area near their indoor/outdoor villa. #chimpsoutdoors #arthurchimp #joshchimp #tazchimp #chimps Photo: Crystal Alba

It's their turn! The 7 male chimps of Villa 3 went out into our new 6-acre outdoor habitat for the 1st time! Alpha male Marlon shares a pant hoot of excitement. More pics and video soon #chimpsoutdoors #projectchimps Support the chimps at projectchimps.org Photo: Crystal Alba

This could be the purest photo I have ever seen ❤️🐒@projectchimps It happened today! Research chimpanzees who have spent their entire lives in captivity explored an outdoor forest habitat for the first time in the new Peachtree Habitat!

One group of six males and one group of nine females, all formerly used in biomedical research in laboratories, were released at separate times to freely explore a six-acre, forested habitat in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Georgia. More pics and video to follow!

Evolution isn’t real. Don’t worry about testing on animals. NOPE and NOPE. Look at these guys, y’all. One day, I will volunteer with chimps. One day.. Till then I’ll just keep soaking up all of the resources and dreaming.. Have had my eye on @projectchimps and am so impressed with them! #courage #simplefortune Repost @projectchimps

Outdoors in the grass and trees for the first time in their lives today! Here are pics of the female group of former research chimps now in our sanctuary. The female group was released separately from the males. Photos by Crystal Alba. #projectchimps #chimpsoutdoors
