Give orphans like Ujasiri a second chance

Donate today to protect them

Last month, Lwiro Primate Rehabilitation Center rushed to rescue an orphaned chimpanzee. Thanks to the dedicated care he has received, Ujasiri is on his way to making a miraculous recovery. He was named Ujasiri because it means courage in Swahili.

At first, Ujasiri would not play or groom, important natural behaviors for infant chimpanzees. The trauma he had experienced caused him to wake up panicked at night. Luckily, he still has an appetite and he is gradually improving. Ujasiri’s favorite snacks are peanuts, apples, grapes, and tuna!

Because of you, Ujasiri is safe and getting a second chance at life.

So far, Ujasiri and other rescued animals are receiving the care they need, even during COVID-19 lockdowns. But with no end to the pandemic in sight, the animals need your support – now more than ever.

A generous donor will match your donation up to a total of $8,000. Donate today to double your impact.

If you give now, your donation will be doubled by a generous donor!

Sanctuaries are on the frontlines of an unbelievable crisis. Since March they have been doing everything they can to protect chimps, gorillas, bonobos, and monkeys from contracting COVID-19. These wildlife warriors need your help to save lives.

Sanctuaries are running out of supplies as they strengthen handwashing protocols, disinfect food and supplies, and wear masks when coming in contact with the great apes and monkeys. 100% of your donations will go directly to protecting the staff and animals at African primate sanctuaries against coronavirus.
