Originally, the Wild Animal Orphanage (WAO) was home to 17 chimpanzees, including five HIV-infected chimpanzees who were released to WAO from the now-defunct Laboratory for Experimental Medicine and Surgery in Primates (LEMSIP). In 2010, the Board of Directors were moved to close and dissolve the WAO and permanently relocate the residents to other sanctuaries; 11 chimpanzees were transferred to Save the Chimps in 2011 and the five HIV-infected chimpanzees were transfererd to Chimp Haven in 2012.
