Chimp Haven is a state-of-the-art facility tailored to the needs of retiring research chimpanzees. The construction goal was to offer an environment that stimulates chimp behavior in tier natural habitat. Hot-dip galvanizing plays a very important role at the Haven, as it provides an environmentally safe, low-maintenance facility.
The Haven plan includes an interconnected network of indoor and outdoor courtyards and playgrounds, and large, forested habitats of up to 5 acres. Chimpanzees have long been used in research for science and health it is only fitting they be retired to a facility like the Haven. HDG plays a huge role in keeping these animals safe and cared for in the most economical and long-lasting facility available. The forested property in Caddo Parish, LA, is similar to the native habitat of Africa with plenty of humidity and rainfall, making corrosion protection a necessity. Chimp Haven has been featured on PBS, CNN, Good Morning America, and Animal Planet, as well as the NY Times. Zoos and other animal sanctuaries have observed the success of Chimp Haven for cost-effectiveness and safety.
