Chimp Haven Now the Largest Chimp Sanctuary in the World

The arrival of five new retired chimpanzees this week at Chimp Haven — added to the 23 other retirees welcomed so far this year — now makes Chimp Haven the largest chimpanzee sanctuary in the world, according to a news release. Even more chimps are expected this fall. They’ll join the more than 250 chimpanzees, most of whom were used in biomedical research, now calling the 200-acre forested sanctuary their home.
