You’ll Love When This Chimpanzee Sees the Blue Sky for the Very First Time…Matthew M. Sullivan
The Humane Society of the United States rescued 111 chimpanzees from horrendous conditions in testing facilities, and gave them — for the first time, or for the first time in a long time — their natural right to a peaceful habitat.
Rescuers brought the chimps to Chimp Haven, which is a vast stretch of land designated exclusively to rescued chimpanzees, located in northwest Louisiana. This group of apes has nearly doubled the size of the sanctuary, and is the largest number of chimps ever rescued at once.
Watch the video to see as some apes gaze up to the sky for the first time in their lives.
