The Problem

Every year we look forward to making these edible necklaces for the chimpanzees at the Chimps, Inc sanctuary in Bend, Oregon. We hope to increase our awareness of the problems with wild animals being used by the entertainment industry, drug companies, and being raised in people's homes. It feels good to bring some joy into these chimps lives

Our Plan

This year's Chimp Enrichment Necklace project was very successful. We spent 2 group meetings making about 60 necklaces of dried fruit and cheerios, strung together with jute string. The people at Chimps, Inc. sent us photos and a video of the chimps enjoying our gift. It feels great to make the lives of these friends better. We are all much more aware of the issues around people's use and abuse of animals
