Billy Jo was chosen to greet you on our website to honor him for having been Fauna’s ambassador for nearly 10 years. He is the profile on our logo and a chimpanzee who consistently intrigued, humbled, impressed, educated and won the hearts of everyone who met him.
He was a richly complex individual in intelligence, emotion and behavior. Billy earned everyone’s respect and affection. He served other chimpanzees now held in laboratories by helping us all better understand the effects of laboratory confinement and use on magnificent individuals just like him.
