Five chimps, each a victim of the illegal bushmeat and live pet trades, are currently held in deeply unsafe conditions in Guinea-Bissau, a country in West Africa. Fifi has been kept in a small cage for over a decade. Julio is spending his days tied to a window. Tze lives with a rope around his neck, tied to a tree at a hotel. All are completely alone. But now is their chance to be free.
With no wildlife sanctuary in Guinea-Bissau, it has been extremely difficult to get these chimps the high-quality care they need. But now, with ground-breaking cooperation from the Guinea-Bissau and Liberia governments, we have everything in place to move them to Liberia Chimpanzee Rescue and Protection, a spacious chimpanzee sanctuary in neighboring Liberia. Moving one chimp out of a country is extremely difficult. Five? It’s almost unheard of.
After years of effort, PASA and our partners in Liberia and Guinea-Bissau finally have a chance to break open their cages. All that’s left is your support.
