Saving Where the Wild Things Are Fundraiser

Spring Wine, Cheese & Chocolate Tasting Event at the Pacific Sports Resort!

Local conservation group, Primate Connections, in conjunction with the Primate Rescue Network hosted a “Wine, Cheese & Chocolate Tasting Celebration” at the Pacific Sports Resort (formerly known as the PAC) in Carmel Valley.  The event, open to the general public, was held on Saturday, May 4th beginning at 5pm.  The event featured some of the BEST wines, cheeses and chocolate from around California and beyond!  There was also live music by Music Moves, great raffle prizes, and a fantastic silent auction.

The intention of the event, aptly themed, “How Do I BREATHE Without You?” is to showcase the inter-relationship between primates, the rainforest, health of our planet and ultimately—the air we breathe!

About Primate Connections

Primate Connections, founded by Corrin LaCombe who currently works as the Conservation Education Research Coordinator for the San Diego Zoo Institute for Conservation Research, is dedicated to helping grassroots primate conservation organizations grow.  Primate Connections encourages networking among primate conservation organizations by supplying a platform upon which organizations can collectively share their voices, collaborate, and fundraise in order to facilitate effective response to global and local issues that threaten remaining primate populations and the forest ecosystems within which they live.

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.
