Getting To Know Them Better

Hannah was born at a breeder’s compound in Missouri and spent her early years appearing at birthday parties.  Joined by the younger males Kenzy and Bentley, Hannah  spent years traveling and  working for a chimp trainer living in Missouri and Nevada. When he could not find work for them, he sold the trio to a private owner in Florida.  As they grew, their most recent owner decided the chimpanzees needed to be at a sanctuary where they could receive dedicated care and be integrated into a group of chimpanzees with larger the  outdoor spaces 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: Daisy, Crystal, and Kodua. She has taken the role of dominant female chimp in that group.  Hannah also is independent and doesn’t mind spending time alone.

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