OUR NEWS

Great Ape Giving Day

On October 15th, people around the world will be able to show their support for their favorite great ape sanctuary on Giving Day for apes. Every dollar and donor we get will help us win a share of thousands of dollars in prize money. Last year, your support contributed to feed and care for the numerous new orphans that the CCC has recently rescued. Thank you very much for being there for us! This year, we are raising funds to reinforce and improve Zoe, Mata and Labe’s life and electrical fence. The current fence was built in 2000, reinforced over the years but it’s not strong enough to keep any males or strong chimpanzees in. Zoe, Mata and Labe are three females that we wish to introduced to males, Gouela and Nelson, but this fence isn’t a facility where we can do so. There are currently two males on stand by, locked into adjacent cages waiting to be introduced with the females. You want to help?

OUR MISSIONS

Seized by the Guinean authorities, orphaned chimpanzees are welcomed at the CCC where they are offered the best possible captive living conditions and to prepare them to be released if possible.

For the orphans to be released in their natural habitat, a long rehabilitation process of several years is   necessary.

The CCC educate the local population on the threats to chimpanzee’s survival.
They learn the importance of protecting this species and its habitat.

The Center actively participates in local community development around the High Niger National Park (HNNP) where the sanctuary and releasing sites are located
