Thank you to our Chimp Champions!

It was a beautiful day at the Sanctuary, as we hosted our first annual Champions for Chimps luncheon on Saturday, February 4th. We especially want to thank our wonderful friends who turned out to hear the incredible chimp-care staff share insights and behind the scenes moments of our special residents. We hope you enjoyed the front row view of a real live chimp-party, followed by an elegant luncheon overlooking Air Force Island, and a behind-the-scenes Sanctuary experience.

Thank you to Honorary Chairpersons, NASA Astronaut Robert L. Crippen (Captain, USN, RET.) and Pandora Crippen. We are so grateful and honored to have your support.

Thank you to Save the Chimps Board Members Sarah Haney and Jon Stryker for your sponsorship of the event.

Thank you to all of our guests for attending and supporting our beloved chimpanzees. You make our work possible and truly are champions to the chimpanzees in our care. Our Board of Directors, Advisory Council Members, and staff were excited to meet so many wonderful supporters.
