Chimp Haven Chimpanzee Discovery Day

– Located less than an hour outside of Shreveport, Chimp Haven, the world’s largest chimpanzee sanctuary, is welcoming visitors for three exclusive Discovery Days this year. Animal sanctuaries rarely open to the public, making Chimpanzee Discovery Days a unique opportunity for visitors to experience firsthand the 200-acre forested refuge that is home to more than 270 chimpanzees, most of whom were retired from biomedical research. – Located less than an hour outside of Shreveport, Chimp Haven, the world’s largest chimpanzee sanctuary, is welcoming visitors for three exclusive Discovery Days this year.
