It's easy to see how much Irene adores baby Tonk! Tonk was born at Lion Country Safari in Florida as part of a collaborative conservation program to save chimps from extinction.
In the wild, chimps are endangered (and critically endangered in some regions), due to a number of factors, including wildlife trafficking. As adorable as Tonk is, he will one day be massive; we're talking over 150 pounds of pure muscle! Chimps need our support for conservation but they're #NotAPet.
