indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

Be an Advocate for African Chimps

Posted on


The African Wildlife Foundation needs us to help chimps.

There are as few as 172,000 chimps left in the wild.  Their populations continue to decline to such an extent that they could be gone in all our lifetimes.

We need to turn their situation around.

Chimps are facing real threats.

  • Wildlife traffickers want them for bushmeat. 
  • There’s an illegal global trade in skulls and other body parts
  • Traffickers want the baby chimps for the exotic pet trade.  Sometimes a protective chimp family is killed in the process.
  • And their habitats are decreasing rapidly

The African Wildlife Foundation is asking us to become Advocates for Chimps and to pledge to save them.   Find out how the Foundation is helping chimpanzees here
