Our Resident Chimpanzee Artists


Sammy is an amazing story of triumph and recovery for the Wildlife Waystation. Arriving from research laboratories in the mid-1990s, he was fearful & deeply troubled. It took many years of dedicated care & compassion, but slowly the Wildlife Waystation Keepers were able to work with Sammy so that he could live a happy life – eventually joining a family of other chimpanzees. While Sammy has since passed, once he understood that he was safe & cared for – he enjoyed many contented years and lived well into his 30’s.





Terry is in his mid-30’s and is a very mellow & gentle chimpanzee. Having come from a research facility, his life at the Waystation is greatly different than his beginnings. Today, he peacefully lives with a family of three females and three males. It would appear from his painting that this gentlemanly chimp greatly enjoys blue skies and green trees





Shasha was born in captivity in 1999 and celebrating her 18th birthday in November 2017. Rejected by her mother, Shasha was raised from infancy by Wildlife Waystation Founder, Martine Colette. A sophisticated & intelligent chimp – she truly enjoys painting. Despite her young age Shasha is the matriarch of her family group
