The Problem

Chimpanzees are adorable as babies and intriguing as individuals. However, these great qualities are why people try to keep them in captivity. We want to help others learn about chimpanzees and why they need to stay in the wild.

Our Plan

We will be watching Disneynature's Chimpanzee documentary to see the beauty of chimpanzees living in their forest home. We will discuss and share information regarding positive imagery and how anyone can help make an impact through social media. We will learn about The Jane Goodall Institute ChimpanZoo program and the program's goals: -To increase public awareness about the plight of chimpanzees and to increase understanding of chimpanzee behavior. -To assist zoos in their efforts to improve the habitats and conditions for captive chimpanzees. -To facilitate the exchange of information on ways to enrich the lives of captive chimpanzees.
