Back in February we featured Brandon Wood on our blog. For those of you who don’t yet know him I encourage you to find out more about this amazing individual. Visit his blog at http://makeachimpsmile.blogspot.com/ or find him on Facebook. Yes, Brandon is a SuperKid and inspiration to chimpanzee advocates everywhere! Yesterday, in celebration of his birthday, we here at CHCI threw a party for the chimpanzees sponsored by his mom, Deanna Fawcett Wood.
The human caregivers had a blast setting up the party room for the chimpanzees. Forage treats included in the party room were as follows: cherries, peaches, apricots, walnuts, licorice and grape juice. From what I could tell the party was a success with the chimpanzees too!

Loulis relaxing in the party room. Notice his drooped lip? That’s a relaxed and happy chimpanzee face.
Dar with one of his favorites . . . juice, of course!

The party continued later with pizza, fruit tea, and a fruit platter for dinner. All and all it appeared a satisfying party for these three chimpanzees. Thanks again to Brandon & Deanna for making it possible.
