Jason was appropriately wary about the drone camera overhead. Our friends at @conditiononevr helped us capture some great footage of the chimpanzees in the outdoor habitat. They kept their distance to be sure we didn’t aggravate the chimps. #chimpsoutdoors #drone #jasonchimp

Here's a close-up of Hercules' first steps outdoors in our forested, 6-acre, outdoor habitat. Watch the whole video from the link in our profile. Hercules, a former research chimpanzee, has a signature head nod, as does his companion, Leo. Danner, Leo and the other six adolescent males in their social group of nine, watched from the mesh tunnel that connects their villa to the outdoor habitat as Hercules bravely stepped outside. Five of the nine chimpanzees went out into the habitat Tuesday for the first time. We'll see who else goes out in the days and weeks to come. The beauty is they now have a choice. It's their time to live! #chimpsoutdoors #newchimps #herculesandleo #chimpanzees #chimp #chimps #wildlife #animalvideo #projectchimps

Look at Leo’s expression as he looks up at the open sky above! We live for these moments! So many great video clips from today that we can’t wait to share. 7-year-old Oscar seemed so content eating oranges scattered by his caregivers. #chimpsoutdoors #newchimps #leochimp #oscarchimp #chimpsanctuary #chimpsofinstagram #chimps #thedodo #projectchimps #chimpanzees #chimpanzee #animalvideo #bekindtoanimals

The #newchimps are ready to go outdoors! They are out of their initial 30-day quarantine and can go outside in our forested 6-acre Peachtree Habitat! Our vet and caregivers have confirmed what we always assumed - that Hercules, Leo, Kennedy, Ray, Danner, Binah, Jacob, Oscar and Kivuli are healthy and ready to enjoy the outdoor habitat. We follow the same procedures with all new groups of the #chimpanzees at the sanctuary to protect their health. Watch for photos and video of the release...soon! #herculesandleo #chimpsoutdoors #chimpsofinstagram #chimps

Watch Noel climb the new tire we placed in the outdoor habitat for the chimps! She and seven other of her group mates enjoyed a warm spring day foraging for raisins and seeds placed by their caregivers in our 6-acre Peachtree Habitat. You can donate raisins, seeds and other items from our Amazon Wish List at projectchimps.org #noelchimp #chimpsoutdoors #chimpanzees #chimp #chimps #getoutdoors #getoutside #springtime #spring

Not sure who’s more interested in whom, caregiver Anthony or Noel and three of her group mates? The observation windows allow our care staff and socialization experts to observe the chimpanzees in the outdoor habitat. #noelchimp #chimpsoutdoors #curiosity #chimpanzees

Happy Sunday! Hope you get a chance to explore the outdoors today like Loretta and Harley. Tag a friend to pass along the love! Photo by Crystal Alba #chimpsoutdoors #sundayfunday #sundaymorning #chimpanzees

Sarah and Noel have been running all around our 6-acre outdoor Peachtree Habitat this spring with their seven other group mates. Noel, who has some hair loss from excessive grooming, is even starting to get a bit of a tan! #sarahchimp #noelchimp #chimpsoutdoors #chimpanzee #blueridgeoutdoors Photo by Crystal Alba

Video: Babs turned 22 yesterday! Watch a not-yet-seen moment when she and Sky went outdoors in our wooded habitat for the 1st time. And for those who saw us post Bab’s age as 19 yesterday, our apologies. Social media managers might underreport their age by three years but chimpanzees don’t. 😳 #babschimp #skychimp #chimpsoutdoors #chimpanzees #chimp #intothewoods Photos by Crystal Alba

These female chimpanzees are #FIERCE Watch Loretta and 8 other former research #chimps go out in the woods for the first time, hugging one another under an open sky. Video link in our profile! #projectchimps #chimpsoutdoors #chimpanzees #animalvideos #wildlife Photos: Crystal Alba

Guess which one of these nine #chimpanzees went out into our forested outdoor habitat first? We'll post her pic next! Video coming... #chimpsoutdoors #chimps #fierce #intothewoods #sanctuary #projectchimps Photos: Crystal Alba

Sky is FIERCE! She and 8 other female #chimpanzees went out into the woods at Project Chimps for the first time and it was amazing!! More pics and video tomorrow. #chimpsoutdoors #skychimp #chimps #freedom #sanctuary #greatapes #projectchimps #intothewoods Photo by Crystal Alba

Loretta would be as excited for the weekend as we are if she knew what was coming...she and her 8 group mates are going out into the woods here for the 1st time! #chimpsoutdoors #lorettachimp #chimpanzees #projectchimps #chimps Photo by Crystal Alba

Stirlene, a 14-year-old male #chimp, has been camped outside Villa 4 lately, watching the nine females on their open-air porch. It's almost like he knows they're going outdoors soon :) #chimpanzees #stirlenechimp #chimpsoutdoors #projectchimps Photo by Crystal Alba

Time flies when you're having fun. We can't believe these 9 amazing female #newchimps joined us 3 months ago today! To celebrate, they will be going outdoors in our forested, 6-acre Peachtree Habitat VERY soon! #chimpanzee #chimps #chimpsoutdoors #projectchimps #freedom Photos by Crystal Alba

We’re featuring Emma on #worldwildlifeday People sometimes ask if we plan to return the chimps to the wild. The answer is no. Nearly, if not all, of these chimpanzees were bred In captivity and human-raised. They are not physically or socially adapted to living in African jungle. It’s important to remember today, the chimpanzees that live in native habitats in Africa are threatened every day by the encroachment of man.
Our mission at Project Chimps is to provide exemplary lifelong care to these majestic wild creatures, who previously lived in research facilities. It’s their time to live.

This happened! Watch Emma make an interesting discovery during her first time in the south portion of the outdoor Peachtree Habitat #emmachimp #latriciachimp #chimpsoutdoors #chimpanzees #chimp #projectchimps Photos by Crystal Alba

For the first time in their lives 15 former research chimpanzees were given a chance to go outside. And Lance the chimp’s expression says it all ☺️
@projectchimps is doing amazing work building a sanctuary for chimpanzees to just be chimpanzees! By the end of the year their goal is to provide sanctuary to over 60 chimps! 📸 credit: @projectchimps

She climbed a tree! After years in a research facility, alpha female Latricia was the first chimpanzee to climb a tree in our 6-acre outdoor Peachtree Habitat at Project Chimps! See the story on the link in our bio or on our FB or YouTube channels. #latriciachimp #chimpsoutdoors #projectchimps #femalepower Photos by Crystal Alba

It's been rainy here but it eased up enough for the chimps to go outside! Caregiver Holly snapped this pic of Gertie, Latricia and Emma. The chimps are still more comfy climbing the familiar fire hose ropes. #gertiechimp #latriciachimp #emmachimp #chimpanzees #chimpsoutdoors

@Regranned from @projectchimps - Marlon got very playful, displaying at the viewing window during his first time in the outdoor habitat. His familiar chimpanzee caregivers, Kaitlyn and Holly, were on the other side. #chimpsoutdoors #marlonchimp #projectchimps #chimps Photo: Crystal Alba - #regrann

@Regranned from @projectchimps - Patrick (f) and Marlon (r) explore their new outdoor habitat for the 1st time! Going out in the 6-acre forested habitat was scary and exciting (see Patrick's fear grimace) but they were brave! #wedensdaywisdom #projectchimps #chimpanzees #chimpsoutdoors Photo: Crystal Alba - #regrann

It's their turn! The 7 male chimps of Villa 3 went out into our new 6-acre outdoor habitat for the 1st time! Alpha male Marlon shares a pant hoot of excitement. More pics and video soon #chimpsoutdoors #projectchimps Support the chimps at projectchimps.org Photo: Crystal Alba

This could be the purest photo I have ever seen ❤️🐒@projectchimps It happened today! Research chimpanzees who have spent their entire lives in captivity explored an outdoor forest habitat for the first time in the new Peachtree Habitat!

One group of six males and one group of nine females, all formerly used in biomedical research in laboratories, were released at separate times to freely explore a six-acre, forested habitat in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Georgia. More pics and video to follow!

Evolution isn’t real. Don’t worry about testing on animals. NOPE and NOPE. Look at these guys, y’all. One day, I will volunteer with chimps. One day.. Till then I’ll just keep soaking up all of the resources and dreaming.. Have had my eye on @projectchimps and am so impressed with them! #courage #simplefortune Repost @projectchimps
