One Small Step for … Chimps

One small step for primates: an island retirement village for “chimpanauts.” The NASA veterans, which were rescued from steel cages and biomedical experimentation, now tumble and climb amid palms, cattails and marsh grass on an 11-island complex near Fort Pierce, Florida.

They thrive in a safe haven, protected and contained by the islands’ isolation, thanks to Dr. Carole Noon and Save the Chimps, a charitable orgranization.
