Friends of Bonobos
We're on a mission to save and protect bonobos and their rainforest home - forever.
Friends of Bonobos works with Amis des Bonobos du Congo in the DR Congo to save bonobos and their rainforest home.
We do this through rescue, sanctuary, and rewilding, by partnering with local communities to tackle root causes and save rainforest, and by raising the profile of bonobos locally and globally.
We have a comprehensive approach to bonobo conservation. We're in this for the long haul.
--We rescue endangered bonobos that have been orphaned by the illegal trade in wildlife.
We give them essential care and sanctuary as long as needed, and then, when possible, release them back to the rainforest.
--We partner with and support Congolese communities near bonobo habitat to save rainforests. We manage and protect the forest preserve, ensuring wildlife and their rainforest home are protected for the long term.
--We raise global and local awareness of endangered bonobos and the root causes that threaten their survival. We work with local and international authorities to uphold and strengthen the laws supporting endangered wildlife.
