Mission: “We support and work directly with Amis des Bonobos du Congo (ABC) and we raise awareness for bonobos and their plight globally. ABC is based in the Democratic Republic of Congo, the only country where bonobos live in the wild. They are the heroes behind some of the most effective and extensive bonobo conservation programs in the world.”
What is are Bonobos: "Bonobos are great apes, like humans! They are only found in in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where they live in the Congo Basin Rainforest - the second largest rainforest on the planet. Bonobos are peaceful, cooperative, and welcoming to newcomers. Bonobos are endangered and could go extinct in our lifetime. We're on a mission to stop that."
Mission: “Orangutan Outreach’s mission is to protect orangutans in their native forests of Borneo and Sumatra while providing care for orphaned and displaced orangutans until they can be returned to their natural environment. If they cannot be released, we will do everything in our power to ensure they have a life of dignity and the best possible long-term care. We seek to raise funds and promote public awareness of orangutan conservation issues by collaborating with partner organizations around the world.”
