Thankfully, the Humane Society of the United States is doing everything it can to give these animals a better life. As far as chimpanzees go, The Humane Society is actively rescuing lab chimps and giving them a natural habitat to climb trees and engage with other chimps.
The chimps you’ll see in the video below are part of a massive chimp retirement. Over 100 chimps were released into a sanctuary. since they’ve been kept in captivity for most of their lives, they can never be released back into the wild, especially since most of them are over 50 years old. However, the sanctuary is the next best place for a chimp to live out their lives in peace.
Besides being able to play outside for the first time, this was also the first time many of the chimps are getting to interact with each other with out cages separating them. For the rest of their lives, these chimps will be able to socialize and explore a natural habitat.
Watch the chimps’ retirement, and don’t forget to SHARE this incredible moment with your family and friends!
