Construction begins

Finally we've starte constructing the foundation of the new dormitory for the chimpanzees. It's next to a little forest which we plan to put a fence around so that the chimps can play in the forest all day. The money for the foundation came from AWARE- Norway 7800 USD, mostly from Kristiansand Zoo and some from Seadrill, and private donations. The foudation is 20m*10m, and has 6 rooms for the chimpanzees, and a corridor for keepers. We don't have the money to continue after the foundation is finished yet, but have hopes they will arrive soon...
