I am so thankful for your unbelievable support for Africa’s endangered and threatened primates. You make it possible to protect and save chimpanzees, gorillas, bonobos and monkeys from the cruel illegal wildlife trade.
Many of you have asked for an update on little Tita. Just a few months ago, baby Tita was a victim of one of the most horrific poaching stories we’ve ever heard about.

With your support and the dedicated care from the staff at Chimpanzee Conservation Center (CCC), PASA’s member organization in Guinea, Tita is growing stronger every day. She is even making new friends!
Tita was just introduced to the other orphaned babies at CCC – the first chimps she met since she saw her family beaten to death a few months ago. The look on her face when she met the other orphaned chimps was priceless.
We have a video of that precious moment – see it here! https://www.facebook.com/pasaprimates/videos/10156142551009564
Helping Animals by Helping People
Did you know that PASA member sanctuaries employ over 500 people from local communities in Africa?
It takes so many caring hands, hearts and minds to protect and care for the planet’s most threatened and endangered animals. That is why PASA provides opportunities for African sanctuary staff to become leaders in the field of animal welfare and conservation.
In 2016, PASA started a grant to make it possible for African sanctuary staff to attend our annual Strategic Development Conference. The conference brings together sanctuary directors and managers to discuss challenges in conservation and welfare, find solutions, and become stronger organizations.

Another Endangered Baby is Saved
Tragically, this sweet little gorilla is yet another victim of the illegal wildlife trade.
Bobga was very small when his mother and family were slaughtered for meat as they tried to protect him. Though he survived, what he saw will probably scar him forever.
Like many other orphans of the bushmeat trade, Bobga was tied up and kept as a novelty pet. When rescuers found out, they hurried to free him as soon as possible.

Bobga was brought to sanctuary at Limbe Wildlife Centre, a PASA member in Cameroon. The staff are giving him all the love and tender care he needs at this delicate age, but they can only do this with your help.
What Will You Be Remembered For?
Have you made a Will? Have you considered including nonprofits such as PASA?
When I became involved with PASA, I learned how the organization turns donations into lasting changes that protect primates throughout Africa. I visited PASA member wildlife centers in Africa and saw first-hand that PASA and our members save lives and protect our closest relatives from extinction.
It seemed natural to include PASA in my Will, so I can be sure this essential work will continue. It was easy, and it only took a few minutes.
Including PASA in your Will is a decision you can make today about what happens with your money when you no longer need it. It doesn’t have any impact on you during your lifetime, so everyone can do it whether wealthy or not. Friends, will you leave a legacy as a primate protector?
Very best wishes,
Pan African Sanctuary Alliance
