Christmas with the Chimps

Excited chimpanzees raced to meet Santa during the 27th annual “Christmas with the Chimps” at Lion Country Safari Wednesday. Presents, which included stuffed animals, clothes and snacks, were provided and wrapped by ChimpanZoo volunteers. ChimpanZoo is a program developed by renowned chimpanzee expert Jane Goodall for the research, enrichment and education of captive chimpanzees.
