PASA Primates: Pan African Sanctuary Alliance

Heartbreaking news coming from Lwiro Primates. A young chimp arrived in the worst condition they have ever seen. This video is tough to watch. They also posted a powerful message and encourage you to read it.

Our newest rescue, Mubaki. This is the worst condition we’ve received any chimpanzee in. Despiste the anger and frustration our team is feeling, we’d like to share something with you. Please take 5 mins out and read what we have to say: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Why is Mubaki here with us today? It’s because of bushmeat trade. It refers to the illegal hunting of wildlife for meat and income, as many rural communities depend on it for subsistence. But before we go about hating the people who eat wild animals, please let’s think for a moment. None of us who have the luxury of a smartphone, or Instagram, or something as basic as having 3 meals a day, understand what it’s like to face dire hunger, or worse, the desperate need to feed our kids. While it is one of the biggest threat to chimp population today, habitat loss over the years has also been the crucial to their decline. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Because of its rich resources, Africa has been exploited by the “first world” since the beginning of time. For eg - while the world is trading in billions from the gold/copper industry, the miners working in Africa are left with lesser than nothing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The point we’re trying to make- Everything is interconnected. Every action of ours may have a direct impact on a place or its people we don’t even know exists! Every small choice we make matters. What do we ask of you today? 👉🏼We ask of you to be more aware, and spread this awareness among your friends and family. 👉🏼We ask you to question the impact our lifestyle has on the natural world, and the world at large. 👉🏼Lastly, we ask you to make small alterations in your lifestyle, because it always start small - get that plastic out of your life, recycle that iPhone, don’t buy that extra pair of jeans if you don’t need it, don’t buy that gold only because you want it, replace the long hot showers with sweet buckets baths, and so on and so forth Even if you adopt just one new sustainable habit every month, you’re directly saving a chimpanzee. You’re directly saving our forests. You’re directly saving our only planet. Let’s make this world a better place, because WE CAN!

SO MANY orphans coming into sanctuaries in the last months! What is going on? It used to be that hunting would go up around Christmas to supply wealthy Africans with their holiday bushmeat, ape meat being a status meat, but this is not that time of year. PASA do you keep stats of frequency of incoming orphans to all the sanctuaries? This is very alarming.

That precious little creature!! I just want to hug him!

Poor poor little baby ❤️🙏

Sweet baby

Get better soon, little one...xo

❤️❤️❤️

You can almost feel the sadness and despair in this young chimpanzee’s eyes. This little orphan likely witnessed the brutal slaughter of his whole family, leaving him alone and vulnerable, another victim of the illegal wildlife trade.

Become a guardian today for less than $7/month for one year, and help ensure that your sponsored chimp will get a healthy balanced diet, expert care, and a safe home.

Omg poor poor baby this is so sad. Can we not start killing the killers. Heartbreaking in so many ways but for the poor little ones, like us I have no doubt they'll never forget the horror

I’ve been trying but can’t get the link to work to adopt 😞

Hermoso, que ternura

😢😢😢

Quel regard 💖

Where do we sign to ban this? To make governments Put more attention on these horrible practices?
