Unrest in town and situation back to “normal”

Many riots and gun shots this morning as demonstrators marching for the previous Governor of the province were stopped by the army and the police… Because of the insecurity, all our residents were kept in their night facilities and the keepers remained next to them as to calm them down. Our chimpanzees get very scared and nervous when there are shootings since it reminds them of the day their group was attacked and killed by poachers; the day they lost their families, their mother, their forest…

In the early afternoon, when situation had come back to “normal” in town, the keepers opened the gates and the chimpanzees were enjoying their routine… We were all extremely happy to see them all interacting normaly without any signs of stress.
