EAZA Ape Campaign
The 2011 edition is called the EAZA Ape Campaign. This year’s goal is to make a significant and lasting contribution to the thriving of diverse species of apes and their habitats. Almost all species of hominoids – gorillas, chimpanzees, bonobos, orangutans and gibbons – are threatened, some of them seriously so. Threats include hunting, trade, habitat destruction and illness. The EAZA Ape Campaign will bring the fate of these apes to the public’s attention. Part of the money raised during this campaign will be used to start an EAZA Ape Conservation Fund, which can support projects for the preservation of great apes and gibbons.
The EAZA Ape Campaign has its own website: www.apecampaign.org.
