Protect Great Apes from Home
YOU have the power to make a difference from the comfort of your own home! Check out our list below of different ways you can help secure a brighter future for wild primates and their habitats.
- Learn all about the issues facing great apes and their habitats through our Apes Like Us Channel and other online resources. Share them with friends and family, and encourage the young ones in your life to take an interest in conservation!
- Avoid products with palm oil OR opt for materials using sustainable palm oil and other natural, eco-friendly materials. Learn more about the issue here.
- Many precious metals used in phones and electronics are extracted from former ape habitats in the Democratic Republic of Congo. You can help lessen the need for these metals by recycling your old phones and gadgets through companies like Eco-Cell and opting to purchase second hand, refurbished tech whenever possible
- For our American supporters, you can contact your local representatives and urge them to support funding & conservation initiatives for apes, such as the Great Ape Conservation Fund and legislation that prevents the primate pet trade such as the Captive Primate Safety Act
- Get involved afar with ethical great ape sanctuaries and conservation organizations, like our Program Partners. You can also volunteer abroad and help in person!
