You’ll Love When This Chimpanzee Sees the Blue Sky for the Very First Time…

As our closest related mammals (sharing 98% of the same DNA as humans), chimpanzees remind us so much of ourselves. They deserve, like all animals, to be treated with respect and kindness. This isn’t always the case, however. The Humane Society of the United States rescued 111 chimpanzees from horrendous conditions in testing facilities, and gave them — for the first time, or for the first time in a long time — their natural right to a peaceful habitat.

Rescuers brought the chimps to Chimp Haven, which is a vast stretch of forested land designated exclusively to rescued chimpanzees, located near Shreveport in northwest Louisiana. This group of apes has nearly doubled the size of the sanctuary, and is the largest number of chimps ever rescued at once.

Watch the video below to see as some apes gaze up to the sky for the first time in their lives.
