WORLD CHIMPANZEE DAY All our #chimp residents had additional treats on this special #worldchimpanzeeday

Almasi is spellbinding. This former research chimpanzee loves being outdoors in our forested habitat. She is middle-ranking in her social group of nine. She was born on May 15, 2007, and arrived at Project Chimps in Dec. 2017. See this full photo of #almasichimp by Crystal Alba on our Facebook page! 😍

Chimpanzee numbers are declining rapidly, but is there still hope to save them? All great apes are protected species, meaning that it is illegal to kill or capture them or to buy and sell them - whether dead or alive. But they continue to be threatened by illegal poaching for consumption; the use of snares which is creating a bushmeat crisis; the destruction of their habitats; and are sold as pets for the lucrative and illegal wildlife trade market. Securing their habitats and preventing poaching and trade is critical not just for great apes, but for all the animals and people who live there. In @chinko.project , in the Central African Republic, we are doing just this. Protecting a vast landscape that is home to a myriad of different species, including chimpanzees. Four years ago, when we assumed management of the park, we flew over the sprawling ecosystem and saw hundreds of thousands of cattle, and only remnant populations of wildlife who were barely existing at all. Today, we see frequent sightings of herds of Lord Derby eland, bongo, roan antelope, elephants now with calves, and we even hear lions roaring at night. We have even documented what seems to be a critically important population of chimpanzees living on the periphery of the park. In just four years, we have created a safe, core area of the park, roughly the size of Yellowstone, that is free of all threats - cattle, armed herders, poaching - and in the absence of those threats, life has found its way back into this once forgotten and lawless park. Chinko has become a beacon of hope that wild habitats can be restored, protecting key species like chimpanzees and other endangered species.

#CampLeakey remains the one place on earth that two #greatapes—the #endangered #orangutans and #overpopulated humans are totally equal! It is a humbling and inspiring place that ignites soulful and spiritual journey.

Late snack to end the feasting shot out to #simnettnutrition for the recipe #vegansnack #silverbacks #greatapes

We are very proud to be a part of a fantastic effort for a fantastic cause! We can't wait to see the Remembering Great Apes book, launching in October this year. Make sure to pre-order a copy, as the first print run is likely to sell out! All money from the sale of the book goes to conservation initiatives for the world's great apes, including chimpanzees and our beloved Mountain Gorillas. @rememberingwildlife @bornfreefoundation @margotraggettphotography

Young orangutans are completely dependent on their mothers for food and transportation for the first two years of their lives. Mothers are very protective, as Linda here keeps her infant close to her while exploring a more open area of the forest.
