Protect endangered bonobos and receive a free hardcover copy of “Empty Hands, Open Arms”!

With your donation, you will receive award-winning author Deni Béchard's book Empty Hands, Open Arms: The Race to Save Bonobos in the Congo and Make Conservation Go Viral. This poignant, illuminating work chronicles Béchard’s travels through the Congo with the Bonobo Conservation Initiative. Weaving together environmental, political, historical, and anthropological narratives, Béchard captures the challenging context in which BCI’s founder Sally Jewell Coxe, Executive Director Michael Hurley, and their team have worked for many years. Béchard chronicles how, despite overwhelming obstacles, BCI’s inclusive and participatory approach to conservation has achieved remarkable success.

“Béchard’s riveting journey...provides a surprisingly uplifting story about a radically different and successful conservation program” –David Suzuki, author of The Sacred Balance: Rediscovering our Place in Nature.
