Protect Orphaned Chimpanzees and Fight for Habitat Conservation

The Big Picture

Goal: $1,000
  $180 raised
The Sanaga-Yong Chimpanzee Rescue Center in Cameroon, Africa seeks volunteers.

Volunteers work with Cameroonian staff, buy food/supplies in nearby villages, help with the care and feeding of the young chimpanzees, maintain equipment, assist with construction, painting and manual tasks. A 6 month commitment is required. Qualifications or length of stay can be negotiated for applicants with professional veterinary or medical training, or mechanical, electrical or construction skills and experience.

Hands-on contact with chimpanzees is limited.

Impact of Your Donation

Donations are used to provide life-saving care for the 72 orphaned chimpanzees at the Sanaga-Yong Chimpanzee Rescue Center; rescue operations to confiscate illegally held chimpanzees; and an extensive public education program that includes television and radio spots. Our mission is to protect orphan chimpanzees and to fight for the conservation of the remaining free-living wild chimpanzees. When possible, we aim to release chimpanzees into protect wildlife areas.
