California Dept of Fish and Wildlife Training Chimps
Video posted by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife showed how Wildlife Waystation staff trained the 32 chimpanzees still living at the animal rescue facility out of their cages through evacuation tunnels and into smaller transport cages in the event of a wildfire. NAPSA is leading the effort to rehome these chimpanzees at trusted sanctuaries before they are threatened by another season of wildfires.
Chimp Sanctuaries Restrict Visits Over Concerns About the Coronavirus
Chimpanzee sanctuaries are restricting human interactions with chimps to prevent passing a human coronavirus infection to the animals. Erika Fleury, program director at the North American Primate Sanctuary Alliance, said the sanctuaries in her organization, which all set their own policies, are “increasing precautions in order to not only protect the primates in their care, but also all the humans working at the organization.”
