Ape Conservation in Africa


Wild gorillas and chimpanzees are on the brink of extinction. Habitat loss and poaching threaten these magnificent animals like never before. 


Ape Action Africa is committed to ape conservation in Africa - protecting Cameroon’s great apes through direct action, including rescuing orphaned gorillas, chimpanzees and monkeys, giving them a safe forest sanctuary home where they can live with their own kind.


Pikin has lost her fight

We are absolutely heartbroken by the news that Pikin has lost her fight for life. As you can imagine, Rachel and her team are devastated.


She had a badly broken leg with a severe infection and contracted tetanus so we sadly had to let her go. Rest in peace lovely, gentle Pikin.  Find out more on our news page.


Thank you so much for your support last week in response to our plea to help Pikin, we have been truly overwhelmed by the love and support for her.
