KEITHVILLE, La. (AP) — A northwest Louisiana sanctuary for chimpanzees that once were used for research has taken on 10 new residents.

The nonprofit Chimp Haven says in a Monday news release that the chimps have arrived from the Alamogordo Primate Facility in New Mexico. They are among more than 360 federally owned chimpanzees that were retired from research in 2013 by the National Institutes of Health.

Since the 2013 move, 51 chimpanzees have been placed at Chimp Haven. The sanctuary plans to take more next year.
