Africa's chimpanzees need help to survive. Sign AWF's pledge now!

Ruthless wildlife traffickers are targeting them. Their habitats are shrinking rapidly. And their babies are being sold into the exotic pet trade. It's frightening – Africa's chimpanzees are facing extinction. Pledge to save them now!

In Cameroon, apes are being targeted to feed an illegal global trade – which includes the U.S – in skulls and other body parts.

It gets worse. Wildlife traffickers are seizing tiny, helpless babies from their families, and selling them as exotic pets... sometimes slaughtering a protective chimp family in the process. And don't forget, chimps are also increasingly facing habitat loss.

They could be gone in our lifetimes. It's up to us to change their tragic fate. Add your name for Africa's chimps! Become one of 50,000 wildlife advocates to fight for this beloved species right now.

The odds are against them. You can change that. Add your name.

Ruthless poaching... habitat loss... babies being sold into the exotic pet trade. Africa's chimpanzees are facing extinction. Pledge to change that.
