Cost of Enrichment: 

We have fairly strict guidelines when in comes to enrichment items that we give to the chimpanzees at Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest. These guidelines are based on what we’ve observed with our group of chimps. If you are creating enrichment for chimpanzees, it’s important to keep in mind that not all enrichment items are suitable for all chimpanzees. Each individual facility has it’s own enrichment guidelines, so it is critical that you follow the appropriate ones when creating new enrichment.
