Priscilla Feral and Andy Cockrum visit the construction site of Oliver's Playscape. As the new habitat rises, a whole new world will open for 7 apes who will soon have a natural grassy play area.

The silvery structure brings new life to the chimpanzee complex and is already shaded by the huge hackberry trees that are growing around it.

This week, we expect the tunnels to arrive which will be erected 8 feet above the ground and connect Oliver's Playscape to three existing chimpanzee habitats.

The habitat will be unique to Primarily Primates existing habitats and today, on Andy Cockrum's birthday, we celebrate its rise at Green Vegetarian Cuisine at the Alon. — with Priscilla Feral at Primarily Primates.
