Taronga’s Chimpanzees have begun the process of acclimatising themselves to their newly renovated sanctuary. Lulu, the oldest of the community, at 59, saw it fit the other day to make her way to the top of the tallest, newly built, climbing structures! Slight arthritis and old age were no barrier for this healthy lady! What amazed Keepers even more, was by the time they made their way around to the front of the enclosure, to inspect this amazing feat, the old girl, who normally moves very slowly, had made her way back down and was sitting at the opposite end of the new exhibit! Needless to say the Chimps are making the most of their new home!
