Help Us Bring 3 Baby Chimps to Ngamba

URGENT FUNDS NEEDED: $8,000 to transport 3 baby chimps to Ngamba Island Sanctuary DONATE NOW

We have received an urgent request for funds from the Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary in Uganda who are in the process of rescuing three baby chimps confiscated from the black market in the Central African Republic (CAR). They need $15,000 to safely transport the three babies via a chartered flight. The good news is Friends of Chimps already has $7,000 and is looking to raise an additional $8,000. Donate now.

Ngamba veterinarian and program director, Dr. Joshua Rukundo has already traveled to CAR and conducted preliminary health exams on the three babies and as of this post we are waiting for the results. The permits are in place and the sanctuary is working closely with the Uganda Wildlife Authority as the babies will have to be quarantined upon arrival in Uganda.

The Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary is internationally recognized as one of the best primate sanctuaries in Africa and is already the permanent home to 49 orphaned chimpanzees. With two veterinarians on staff and caregivers that have been internationally trained, they provide world class care. They also have experience with successfully reintegrating baby chimpanzees into their larger chimpanzee community.

Sadly, these babies are now orphans and will never be able to return to the wild. Their best chance for survival and a long life in a semi-natural, free-ranging environment is the Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary in Uganda. Please help us bring these babies to their new home where they will be taken care of and can live among other chimpanzees.

Anything you can give will be greatly appreciated. And please share on your social media!
