It's our wonderful supporter Stirrup's 100th birthday today! We're very lucky to have Stirrup as one of our Ape Action Africa allies, and we're incredibly grateful to her for asking her friends and family to donate to us instead of buying her a birthday present. She's raised a fantastic £1,385 to help us care for our rescued gorillas, chimpanzees and monkeys!

We'd like to say a huge thank you to Stirrup and we hope she's having a wonderful birthday! We also hope that it won't be too long before she's able to celebrate with all of her family and friends around her.

Many thanks also to everyone who has donated to her appeal - your generosity is very much appreciated and will help us to provide the primates who've found safety in our sanctuary with the food, veterinary treatment and care that they need. And thank you to everyone who sent in photos to wish Stirrup a happy birthday. We hope you all enjoy watching Stirrup's Happy 100th Birthday video!
