@projectchimps repost: 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!
Thanks to founding board member Marsha Perelman, AAVS, Solid Security Perimeter Solutions, and NAVS for making it possible! All photos by Crystal Alba. #projectchimps #chimpsoutdoors
