Help the Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Project Ensure the Survival of these Amazing Apes.
Chimpanzees need you now more than ever. You can create a better tomorrow for chimps and their habitats in Gambia.
In a November 2008 landmark agreement with the Gambian government, the international animal-rights organization Friends of Animals agreed to help fund and support the Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Project, an island sanctuary located in the River Gambia National Park. It is home to some 99 chimpanzees, who live in relative freedom—without bars or cages—on three of the national park’s five islands.
Before arriving at this refuge, many of the chimpanzees were confiscated as orphans of parents killed by hunters for bushmeat or for zoos, the entertainment industry, or other forms of exploitation. Some were voluntarily relinquished by people who had unwisely tried to make them into pets.
Chimpanzees in the Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Project enjoy the national park’s gallery forest, woodlands, and swamp savannas. The islands are also in the habitat of manatees, hippos, and highly endangered red colobus monkeys.
Your support is crucial as it will ensure that the chimpanzees receive correct nutrition and resources necessary to prevent over-stripping of the island vegetation by the chimpanzees.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR GENEROUS SUPPORT !
