Ape Action Africa



Problem

Modern-day poachers penetrate deep into virgin forests on logging trucks, use high-powered rifles to kill entire families, and smuggle out their illegal spoils. Those infants not killed outright: often wounded themselves, traumatized by the slaughter they have witnessed; are not likely to survive. Unless... Working with law enforcement, Ape Action Africa rescues orphaned gorillas and chimps - some only days old and hours from death - and gives them a second chance at life.

The Gift

For more than a dozen years, dedicated veterinary and care staff have worked around the clock to save the lives of rescued orphans who are often wounded, ill, starved and traumatized. Emergency surgery, critical wound care, rehydration and nourishment are just part of the physical and psychological rehabilitation Ape Action Africa provides to each orphan. Your gift will help make sure that the next orphan receives that same life-saving intervention and care.
