"At the first Discovery Day of the year, one of the best things is all of the fresh vegetation, the buds on the trees," Naranjo said. "The chimpanzees love to eat fresh vegetation."
She also encourages viewers to arrive early, as the chimpanzees are most active in the morning, before they've eaten their fill and found a shady spot to relax in. During a Chimpanzee Discovery Day, visitors have the opportunity to observe the chimpanzees in their forested habitats and tour the sanctuary using the groomed trails with views of two five-acre habitats from across a barrier moat.
Chimp Haven currently houses 134 chimpanzees, all in family groups ranging from 3-15 in size. For more info, visit www.chimphaven.org or call (318) 925-9575.
