Africa's chimpanzees need help to survive. Sign AWF's pledge now!
Ruthless wildlife traffickers are targeting them. They're falling prey to bushmeat hunting. Their habitats are shrinking rapidly. And their babies are being sold into the exotic pet trade. It's frightening – Africa's chimpanzees are rapidly facing extinction. Pledge to save them now!
In Cameroon, apes have long fallen victim to the bushmeat trade. But they’re now being hunted down 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.
