10 Rescued Lab Chimpanzees Arrive at ‘Project Chimps’ for a Second Chance at Life

They walked off their transport vehicle clutching blankies like little kids, but the newest group of chimpanzees to enter the Project Chimps sanctuary in Georgia include some of the oldest animals on the grounds. These 10 chimps were recently rescued as part of an unprecedented agreement with the New Iberia Research Center, which agreed to retire its population of more than 200 privately owned lab chimps to the 236-acre sanctuary in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
