Northern Nomadic Trail - Chimpanzee Sanctuary
The Sweetwaters Chimpanzee was originally estabilished in 1993 in order to receive and shelter a group of three orphaned chimps .In 1995, nine older chimpanzees arrived, followed - at the beginning of 1996 - by a younger cub of ten. The Sweetwaters sanctuary is holding now fourty chimps and the annual cost for taking care of each of them approximates to 6.000 dollars.
