Student in Cowboy EAST have partnered with Chimp Haven since 2006, providing assistance during Chimpanzee Discovery Days, a free public event held seven times a year at the sanctuary in south Caddo.

Chimp Haven is an independent nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide lifetime care for chimpanzees who have been retired from medical research, the entertainment industry or no longer wanted as pets. The organization was founded in 1995 by professionals from the primatological, pharmaceutical, animal protection, zoo and business communities.


EAST students design the Endangered Species of Africa exhibit on display at each Discovery Day. They continue to staff the exhibit and provide interactive games and activities for visitors. In 2007, Southwood High School EAST students provided more than 300 hours at Chimp Haven.
