FedEx teams up with Save the Chimps to bring the “Sunrise Seven” to their forever home
When the Wildlife Waystation, a California animal refuge, closed in 2019, more than four hundred and fifty animals required relocation to new homes. Included in this number were forty-two chimpanzees, many of them from biomedical research facilities or the entertainment industry. With very few accredited sanctuaries capable of handling chimps, it was not an easy task to find them a home that could provide for their specialized needs. As all of the animals from the sanctuary found new homes, only seven chimpanzees remained.
