Ana Paula Tavares, CEO of Save the Chimps


I arrived to Save the Chimps in April 2023 after the Ohio Department of Agriculture awarded STC custody. April, Cash, Anna, and I settled in quickly, embracing and grooming each other, as well as greeting sanctuary staff. I’m the caregiver of my small family and can often be found grooming everyone. I’m also very sweet and friendly to the care staff. After a quarantine, which is standard for any new arrivals to Save the Chimps, we will have the opportunity to make new friends with the goal of joining one of the chimpanzee families who live on the 3-acre islands at Save the Chimps!
