Reflecting on My Internship

Reflecting on My Internship

I just spent two months at an amazing place. Chimps Inc. is doing wonderful things to care for their chimps and I was so excited to help them. The best parts were being able to hang out with the chimps. Talking with them and formulating bonds of friendships was really special to me. The three that I connected to with the best was Topo, Herbie, and Patti. When I talked to those three I really felt that they were listening to what I was saying and responding in their own way to me. They also were the ones who reacted to me the best too. The other parts that I liked were the educational aspect of the internship. This allowed me to really understand the lives of chimps and the effect of captivity has on them. The caregivers were also awesome. They were always there if I needed to ask a question, or explain more in detail a task I was confuse on. They truly care for these chimps and it showed every day I was there. I’m glad Bend Oregon is not that far away from San Jose, California because I know I will be coming back to visit. Last but not least, I want to say thanks to Chimps Inc. for a fun and amazing time. I will never forget it.
