Another call about a baby bonobo in distress could come at any moment. Will you make sure that their life can be saved?

Donate to Rescue Wildlife


When you donate monthly to PASA, sanctuaries can spring into action to save primates like Pongo as soon as possible. It can only be done with your reliable support.

Baby Pongo was left orphaned and kept as an illegal pet.

Pongo, a three-year-old bonobo, was brought to PASA member sanctuary Lola ya Bonobo for medical attention. Thanks to the dedicated care of veterinarian Dr. Jonas and her surrogate mother Mama Yvonne, Pongo is already showing signs of improvement. Soon, Pongo will join the other rescued bonobos in one of the sanctuary’s large forested enclosures. Someday, she might return to the wild where she belongs.

Pongo is just one of several orphaned bonobos recently brought to safety. Omandja and Monkoto just arrived at Lola ya Bonobo and are both in need of urgent care.

Their caretakers are exhausted by the pandemic, and the sanctuary’s resources are strained… but they won’t give up on these animals.

Rescue & Care for Wildlife
Countless great apes and monkeys are orphaned by bushmeat hunters, kept as illegal pets in cramped cages, or smuggled to China or the Middle East.

As the largest alliance of wildlife centers in Africa, PASA is in a unique position to rescue primates from inhumane and abusive situations and ensure they receive excellent lifelong care.

Save a primate – please donate today. They desperately need you.

How Do We Do It?

Rescues: PASA International enables rescues of great apes and monkeys from horrific cruelty by working with our worldwide network, local authorities, and our member wildlife centers.

The centers help them recover from the trauma they endured and let them live in large forest enclosures and form natural social groups.

Whenever possible, the animals are reintroduced to the wild. When this isn’t an option, the wildlife centers’ expert staff give lifelong, loving care.
