Care For A Baby Chimpanzee

Chimpanzees and gorillas in protected forests in Africa are shot down and butchered in the bushmeat trade, and the babies, who are too small to eat, are sold on the black market to be pets. In other areas, baby primates are stolen from the forest to be trafficked to China or the Middle East where they are sold as pets or put on exhibit in appallingly inhumane zoos. These highly intelligent and social animals face a miserable existence locked in cages or living in isolation.

Through collaboration between wildlife centers, other nonprofit organizations, and government agencies, some smugglers are arrested and animals are saved. Thousands of chimpanzees and other primates who have been rescued as babies from the horrific wildlife trade now live at Pan African Sanctuary Alliance (PASA) member wildlife centers across Africa. With support these organizations can impact more and more survivors of the illegal wildlife trade.

You can help! Just $10 feeds a baby chimpanzee for one week!
