About the Primate Rescue Network (PRN)
The PRN was created out of necessity by The CT Project, Inc. Board of Directors after discovering several, under-funded, primate rescue centers throughout Latin America doing amazing work by not only saving endangered primates, but also the surrounding forests in which they live. These vital rescue centers are not only the last hope for confiscated, unwanted and orphaned primates, they also provide education and conservation programs to their surrounding communities.
About Friends of Bonobos
Local non-profit organization Friends of Bonobos‘ sole purpose is to support and promote the work of “Lola ya Bonobo”, the bonobo sanctuary in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) that has been taking in orphaned bonobos, since 1993. The “Lola ya Bonobo” sanctuary was created in 2002 and today is home to more than 60 bonobos who have been or are still being rehabilitated. In 2009 a first group of these bonobos travelled half-way across the country to “Ekolo ya Bonobo” for the first ever bonobo release into the wild.
