What we do
Most of the chimpanzees arrives to CRPL before 3 years old. What it means, their mother was killed to be able to take the baby.
The rescued primates, thus, arrived traumatized and because of the mistreatment while in captivity during the time with the poacher, they also arrive in bad health status. Our main goal is to recover them.
They are rehabilitated while helping to rehabilitate victims of poaching.
Four Roots and Shoots groups (environmental education groups for kids) are active thanks to CRPL.
Additionally the sanctuary is injecting in the local community more than 3.000$ per month, since we buy all the food for our animals from local markets.
