On Friday, December 25, CNN’s American Morning will be featuring a segment on the chimpanzees celebrating “Chimp-mas” at the Florida sanctuary! The chimpanzees’ islands were lovingly decorated – stockings and streamers hung from their platforms, baked apples strung on cattails hung from oak trees and, of course, plenty of  presents were placed under a tree for the chimps to open!
