Today marks the 20th anniversary of the Chimpanzee and Human Communication Institute. Providing Washoe’s chimpanzee family with sanctuary and care has drawn a diverse multitude of volunteers and visitors to Ellensburg over the years. We are proud to have served Washoe’s family and contributed to her legacy by educating and inspiring so many human primates to advocate on behalf of non-humans around the world.
I cannot imagine my life without the influence of all the amazing people I have had the privilege to know because of CHCI, chimpanzee and human alike. I am truly fortunate. Please join us today as we celebrate!
