How your ticket helps our conservation efforts
Chimpanzees are highly endangered with as few as between 170,000 and 300,000 remaining in the wild. The major threat they face is habitat loss due to logging, mining for minerals like coltan that is found in electronic devices, palm oil plantations, susceptibility to human disease and population growth. They are also hunted for bushmeat and captured for the illegal wildlife trade, where young chimps are sold as pets or for entertainment.
We work to help save chimps from extinction through involvement in international breeding programs and providing conservation support to both the Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary in Sierra Leone and the Jane Goodall Institute Australia. Monarto also recently celebrated the arrival of two infant chimps, marking a vital achievement for Chimpanzee conservation and the wider Australasian breeding program.
By purchasing a ticket to Meet the Chimps, you are helping us continue our vital conservation work to help ensure these curious creatures stay a swing ahead of extinction. To support us even further you can also adopt our chimps or make a tax deductible donation.
