Clinical Veterinarian @ Chimp Haven  9-6-17

Come change lives. Starting right here in Northwest Louisiana!

As the National Chimpanzee Sanctuary, Chimp Haven is the only destination for government owned chimpanzees retired from research laboratories.  It is our goal to provide a healthy, happy life for every one of the chimpanzees at our spacious 200-acre campus.

You are an optimistic go-getter who can get things done. You are skilled at analyzing data to build your plan and then rolling up your sleeves to make things happen. You are innovative, creative and comfortable practicing veterinary medicine outside of “the norm” as we often times are breaking new ground for chimpanzee treatment regimens. As a compassionate animal lover, you have a natural ability to treat each chimpanzee as an individual and develop relationships with your patients.  And finally, you are a team player who welcomes the opportunity to collaborate with your veterinary colleagues, the behavioral team, husbandry staff and others to provide the best care possible for our residents.

Come join our team of dedicated staff, scientists and volunteers who are committed to the well-being of chimpanzees.
