1. What is Chimpanzee Discovery Day?

Chimpanzee Discovery Days give guests who visit Chimp Haven on selected days the opportunity to observe the chimpanzees in their natural, forested habitats across a water moat. A large viewing area provides everyone with an unobstructed view. During the once-a-month, informal education event, there are entertaining and educational opportunities for the entire family. Chimp Haven staff is on hand to greet visitors and talk about the chimpanzees. Chimpanzee Discovery Days are from 9 a.m. until noon, from March – June and September – November. Each month focuses on a different theme to give guests a unique experience each time they visit.
