Have you ever dreamed of traveling to a majestic rainforest to admire and experience its majesty and beauty ? We offer you the opportunity of symbolically owning a piece of the rainforest, while helping us help the chimpanzees.

Thanks to your support and donations, we have found the ideal piece of rainforest in the Congolese province of Bas-Congo that is perfect for building a chimpanzee sanctuary. But in order to assure the completion of the sanctuary and the continuity of our mission of protecting the great apes, we need your help.

How will we use your 

« gift from the heart » ?

 

Right now we need to fund anti-poaching and anti-deforestation patrols with the support of the Congolese Institute for the Conservation of Nature (ICCN). Your participation will help ensure the proper ecological management of the forest along with creating employment opportunities for the villagers. Protecting chimpanzees can’t happen without protecting their habitat!

Become a « guardian of the heart » of the trees of our forest.
