Greater Awareness for our Great Apes
With Apes Like Us, you’ll explore different facets of primate conservation and experience the stories of unique individual apes as they are rescued from the illegal pet trade, poaching and other heart wrenching scenarios. We’ll take you to different primate sanctuaries and introduce you to some of the courageous conservation heroes and communities working to protect primates around the world. We’ll discuss great ape ecology, ethology, geography, and much much more to help highlight some of the wonder of our closest genetic relatives. Find out more about the four other great apes and the threats they face with our Primate of the Month newsletter below!
Our facebook is not only geared towards stunning visuals of apes and primates, but also to share articles and spark discourse about the plight of primates around the world and other environmental situations which impact their survival. Join this conversation here!
