How we made a big difference in the past year.
countries have active Roots & Shoots groups
villages partnered to build clinics and implement a region wide vaccination program
people living along a wildlife corridor gained access to clean water
chimpanzees cared for at our sanctuary in the Republic of Congo
Success in protecting the habitat for chimpanzees in Africa starts at the community level.
We recognize the urgent need to protect all chimpanzees, especially those that have been injured or orphaned.
