Happy World Chimpanzee Day!
July 14, 1960 is the day Dr. Jane Goodall first stepped foot in what is now Gombe Stream National Park to study wild chimpanzees. Dr. Goodall called attention to the remarkable chimpanzee and to this day, six decades later, advocates on their behalf. She is our hero and friend, inspiring love and compassion for chimpanzees across the world.

Help us Reach our Goal: 1000 New Donors in 30 Days
Our Board of Directors has issued an aggressive challenge grant, they will double all donations made from July 14th-August 14th in our attempt to reach 1000 new donors in 30 days. It is an ambitious goal, but our resident chimpanzees deserve the best and we are confident their remarkable story of recovery will resonate with those who love and care about animals and the environment.
