Chipper was born sometime in 1974 in Africa
- Chipper’s favorite enrichment toys are old shoes and boots, as well as lots of fresh tree branches for nest building.
- Chipper is an excellent painter and seems to be
in deep concentration when he has a canvas
- When Chipper is out in the aerial trailways, he gallops at top speed through the woods trying to get a game of chase going with staff and volunteers. And, Chipper always wins! He can also be seen playing a fast game of chase with his friend Brooks!
ADOPT AN APE
It costs over $25,000 a year to care for one of our apes. By symbolically adopting the ape of your choice for a one-time donation of $300 OR just $25 a month for one year, you are helping ensure the health, safety, and well-being of your orangutan or chimpanzee.
In addition to cash donations, the Center for Great Apes is always in need of food, enrichment items, and supplies. We welcome gifts of all kinds.
