World Chimpanzee Day 2020

The 14th July is World Chimpanzee Day!

It’s a chance to celebrate our closest living relative in the animal kingdom, and to discover more about these amazing animals and see what we can do to help them.

Chimpanzees face threats in the wild such as habitat loss, disease and wildlife trafficking, illegal pet and bush meat trades.  

 


Those who are kept in captivity as illegal “pets” or in roadside zoos are deprived of essential physical, emotional and especially social needs.  Events such as World Chimpanzee Day help educate the public and promote legislation to end these conditions, increasing the rights and welfare of all captive chimpanzees.

Let’s work to secure a future for these amazing animals.

For they are highly endangered.  100 years ago, there were about 1-2 million chimpanzees across African countries.

Today, there are as few as 350,000 wild chimpanzees in Africa.
