Did you know using chimpanzees and other great apes in entertainment and advertising may seem worthwhile, but it comes at an enormous cost?
The Great Ape Survival Partnership of the United Nations Environment Program (GRASP) estimates that more than 22,000 apes were killed or captured to be sold between 2005 and 2011. The majority of these “takes” are for the illegal pet market, disreputable zoos or tourist attractions.
Each individual has enormous power to use their voice, take a stand, and to motivate others to be just as passionate. Together our collective effort can and will put an end to this cruel practice. The show stops now.
