Chimpanzees are intelligent beings with a complex social structure and the need to be mentally stimulated. Save the Chimps provides variety in their lives by offering them many forms of enrichment – such as painting, foraging, and even parties. The chimpanzees work intently – swirling their brushes, fingers, and sometimes their tongues, in circles or broad strokes – filling the once blank canvas with color.
