Chimp Haven In The Spotlight Crowdfunding Project with Chimp Haven Join Alison Eastwood to give chimpanzees used in research the sanctuary retirement they deserve. Chimp Haven Sanctuary needs our support in accepting newly retired chimpanzees. The sanctuary must more than double in size and secure the additional resources it needs for the chimps’ lifetime care.
