Friends of the Sanctuary program
Did you know?
You can help champion the cause of the chimpanzees by subscribing to the ‘Friends of Chimps program.'
It is a chance for you not only help us ensure the long-term care of the chimps at Ngamba but also to support our conservation initiatives in the wild. Chimpanzee Trust has established conservation programs that encompasses habitat monitoring and education of private forest owners to value and conserve the forests on their land. Chimpanzee Trust offers alternative livelihood projects like beekeeping, pig farming, handcraft making, and community tourism to reduce the pressure exerted on chimpanzee habitat.
The more active and involved the friendship, the more we can raise awareness about the plight of the chimpanzees and the environment.
It is because of the continued generosity of donors like you that we are able to maintain the sanctuary as well as work on critical environmental conservation and community action programs to save chimpanzees in the wild.
The following “Friend of Chimps” packages are available and we encourage you to contact us with any questions or to customize your friendship level.
