You can purchase everyday items on our Amazon Wish List to help the chimps! At Fauna, a wide variety of toys are given as enrichment on a daily basis. Below are the items we desperately need. However, it’s also important that the toys are safe for the chimps to play with and donations are sanitary, so please note our toy and donation restrictions. Thank you for your kind generosity!

Amazon Wish List

To ensure safety, our restrictions on toys and other donations include:

    • No glass.
    • No breakable mirrors. Mirrors that the chimps may have must be the plastic kind.
    • No soft rubber, foam or plastic, such as plastic bags, as several of the chimps enjoy consuming soft and chewy rubber which is dangerous.
    • All items must be new! We cannot accept used items for health and safety reasons.

Please review our list of non-donatable items. If you are unsure of whether an item is safe or not, be sure to contact us and we will be happy to assist you with your gifting.
