World Chimpanzee Day


BIG NEWS: On July 14th 1960, Dr. Jane Goodall, first set foot in Gombe, Tanzania, to begin her research on the incredible lives of wild chimpanzees. Today, we're announcing the FIRST EVER #WorldChimpanzeeDay to be celebrated this 14th July 2018, to honour these highly complex and intelligent beings whom we are most closely related to, and to ignite action to protect them as looming threats risk their extinction.
