CELEBRATING WOMEN ON THE FRONTLINES OF ANIMAL ADVOCACY

FEATURE

DR. CAROLE NOON

“One thing about Carole is she did not take no for an answer. If someone told her she could not do something, that was the guarantee she was going to make it happen.”

Dr. Noon’s legacy lives on in the over 250 chimpanzees who have been rescued from research, entertainment, and the exotic pet trade and who now call Save the Chimps their home.
