The chimps will be transferred in social groups to the 236-acre facility in Blue Ridge, Ga., beginning in June. UL will also contribute funding toward their care at the sanctuary.
“Project Chimps is the appropriate partner for our chimpanzees. We share many values. I believe that for the rest of their lives, our chimpanzees will be provided with the high-quality care they’ve been accustomed to at NIRC,” says Ramesh Kolluru, vice president of Research at UL, in the release announcing the partnership.
