About: Keeva

Keeva arrived at Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo in March 2015 after her birth mother at The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore was unable to properly care for her. She was matched with our adult female chimp “Abby,” known for her ability to foster infant chimpanzees. For the first five months of Keeva’s life, a team of primate animal care specialists provided round-the-clock care. In August 2015, Abby and Keeva were introduced, and are now living together full time.
