Dear Friend of PASA,
Tragically, many people in Africa consider great apes a commodity and believe there will never be a shortage of animals to hunt. They fail to realize that they are driving these species to extinction and robbing Africa of its heritage.
I’m sorry to say that a lack of awareness in local communities and schools is a root cause of this crisis. PASA and our members are addressing this by providing urgently needed education to hundreds of thousands of people across Africa every year.
Your partnership with PASA makes it possible to bring new, exciting programs that teach conservation values to children all over Africa. We’re especially proud to collaborate with villages because their lives are intertwined with the forests that are essential primate habitat.
The Next Generation
We’re developing a new, full-color book about conservation role models who children across Africa can look up to! It will profile African heroes working for PASA member sanctuaries who are on the front lines of wildlife rescue and care. For many children, it will be the first book they have ever owned. When children see people who look like them and live in communities like theirs, they will be inspired to follow in their footsteps and protect primates living near their homes.
The new book costs only $5 per student. It teaches children to be proud of their heritage, feel empathy for primates near them, and protect wildlife. You can give the gift of positive role models, giving hope for the future of great apes and monkeys across Africa.
You can change communities from the ground up and instill a love for wildlife in hundreds of thousands of African families!
• Donate just $20 to give four children their first book!
• Your gift of $50 will enable a teacher to inspire a classroom of students.
• For $100, you will help to make the new book about African role models a reality.
With your support, we’re empowering the next generation of conservationists to take pride in their homes and protect primates. I can’t thank you enough for giving a future to great apes and monkeys.
