Chimp Haven serves as The National Chimpanzee Sanctuary. We are an independent, nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide lifetime care for chimpanzees who have been retired from medical research, the entertainment industry or no longer wanted as pets. Beginning in March and going through November, the second Saturday of each month will be open to the public (with the exception of July & August) for Chimpanzee Discovery Days. Chimpanzee Discovery Days will give the public a chance to see the chimpanzees living in their natural habitat. This event is free and open to the public.
