Seven chimps arrive today. Chimp Haven will eventually take in all 111 chimps from the University of Louisiana Lafayette’s New Iberia Research Center. It no longer has a government contract for chimp research. Chimp Haven vice president Jennifer Whitaker said the chimps will stay in a quarantine area for at least two weeks as they make the transition into their retirement home.</p> Thu, 24 Jan 2013 14:56:20 +0000 Kate Archer Kent 22687 at http://redriverradio.org Chimp Haven prepares for influx of retirees to sanctuary
