GREAT NEWS!!!! BOY IS HOME!!!!
Ten more Chimps were just migrated to Save the Chimps Sanctuary in Fort Pierce Florida. Boy was one of the first ones on the bus. I am so happy that he is finally home where he can roam free on his island with his family!
Boy is around 40 years old. He has had a hard life. He was captured in Africa when he was just a baby and spent almost his whole life in research labs, where he lived in a small cage. These research labs did terrible things to Boy, where he had to have lots of surgery and lots of tests.
In 2002 Save the Chimps rescued almost 300 chimpanzees from the Coulston Foundation and Boy was one of them. I have never met Boy and I don’t know if I ever will. But that’s ok because I am so happy just to know he is free to be on his island. If I get any pictures of Boy on the island I will post them so you can see!
