Getting To Know Them Better

Hannah, Kenzy, and Bentley started their lives working for a chimp trainer living in Missouri and Nevada. As they’ve grown, their most recent owner decided the chimpanzees needed to be somewhere where they could receive dedicated care and be integrated into a larger group of chimpanzees with improved outdoor space that CGA could offer them.

Hannah is the smallest female chimpanzee at the sanctuary, but what she lacks in size she makes up for in attitude! She is a sassy young female who enjoys spending time with her best friend Murray and the rest of her group: Mickey, Daisy, Chloe, and Kodua. She has taken the role of dominant chimp upon herself and rules by force. Hannah also is independent and doesn’t mind spending time alone. She is a half-sister to one of our other residents, Natsu. Hannah’s favorite foods are any leafy greens (except for kale).

She loves participating in husbandry training and some of her favorite food items are prunes, apples and juice boxes.
