At the finest sanctuaries, caregivers look at the world from the chimpanzees’ perspective. Design details and daily life are so much more than keeping everyone clean or fed or healthy. Everything done for chimpanzees in model sanctuaries is done to cut through the harsh boredom of captivity.

For the chimpanzees who have been rescued and are now home in sanctuaries like Fauna Foundation, Save the Chimps, Center for Great Apes, and others, life offers something new, something alive, something that makes life seem not just bearable – but worth living.

Below are images of that life:
