Help save the bonobos

Rescue & Care
At Lola ya Bonobo sanctuary, orphaned bonobos are rescued from the illegal trade in wildlife. Bonobos are nursed back to health and cared for as long as needed, sometimes for the rest of their lives. Bonobos who are able are released back to the wild.

Rewild and Protect
Ekolo ya Bonobo Community Reserve is the world's only bonobo release site.

Here, bonobos are released back into the wild and provided comprehensive and long-term protection. We conserve their rainforest home and work with local communities to reduce poverty, provide healthcare and education, and raise bonobo awareness.

Education and awareness are key to long-term success. This has been a hallmark of the programs in the DR Congo from the start. We are now also raising awareness for bonobos and their plight globally.

Community Development
Bonobos are primarily killed for bushmeat. The root cause of the bushmeat trade is extreme poverty. We work with communities living near bonobos to build a better future through conservation instead of the bushmeat trade.
