Dr. Carole Noon passed away on Saturday. Carole founded Save the Chimps
in 1997 and continued as president of the organization until her death.
Save the Chimps provides island sanctuaries in Florida for more than
150 chimpanzees, and is working to transition the many dozens of
remaining Coulston lab chimpanzees to Florida as well. You can read
more about the history of Save the Chimps on their website.
“Carole gave so much to our fellow apes and our chimpanzee kin. Chimpanzees have lost a great friend.” ~ Deborah and Roger Fouts
“Carole was spirited, determined, and practical, the
ingredients to her success in realizing a dream that changed the lives
of hundreds of chimpanzees. Founding Save the Chimpanzees was an
undertaking of incredible magnitude and I admire her dedication,
courage, and realism. Yes, the chimpanzee community has lost a great
friend.” ~ Mary Lee Jensvold
