One Week's Care for a Rescued Chimpanzee

Item # 30345

Help a rescued chimpanzee return to the wild!

Each year in Africa, thousands of chimpanzees are killed by poachers for the illegal "bush meat" trade. Orphaned baby chimps, not desired for their meat, are then captured and sent, under frightening and dangerous conditions, to either end up as a roadside attraction or to be sold as a pet.

Rescued from the pet trade yet unable to survive in the wild, many of these fragile creatures find a safe haven at the Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary in the Ugandan waters of eastern Africa's massive Lake Victoria. There they are able to recover from their captivity, socialize with other rescued chimpanzees, and learn new skills, with the ultimate goal of being re-introduced to the wild.

Your donation through this Gift That Gives More™ helps care for these beautiful rescued animals. $48.00 provides a week's care -- food, medicine, and any necessary rehabilitation -- for a rescued chimpanzee, with the ultimate goal of returning it to the wild.


Report from the Field
The April 2008 "Ngamba News" bulletin (Issue 15) included this update:

"Our Chimpanzees have become accustomed to the scattered food in the forest for the morning feeding. After opening the exit gate to the forest, everybody is in a rush to search for food in the forest. However, Ikuru, Okech, Pasa, Billi perpetually miss out on the goodies for going out late! For the first time, Mika with the company of Ndyakira who has had a prolonged estrous cycle of 6 days this month spent the night in the forest. [. . .] We did not register any escape, cold and cough among the residents in April."


In addition to giving rescued chimpanzees a safe home and ensuring their welfare, the Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary provides a low-human impact environment on Ngamba Island, a high-quality educational experience for visitors, and benefits the island's local communities.
