It is estimated that April was captured in the wild around 1971 and was privately owned until 1984, when she was leased to the Buckshire corporation, which bred chimpanzees and leased animals to research labs and the entertainment industry. She was used as a breeder for Hepatitis B research. When she arrived at PPI she was thin and shy. Today she is confident, well-adjusted and playful. She loves most food except cactus fruit and her favorite enrichment activity is foraging.
