Fundraiser for chimpanzee in Burundi, Africa Cromer Sydney September 2023

Fundraiser for Chimpanzees in Burundi, Africa

Joy, Avril, Lulu, Flora and Chippy are 5 chimps that currently reside at Musee Vivant (Living Museum), in Burundi. Tragically all 6 chimps have been the victims of the bushmeat trade. After being rescued, they were taken to Musee Vivant to live a better life. But sadly the museum is underfunded.

The Jane Goodall Institute, Australia (JGIA) have been working with various collaborating partners to support the redevelopment of the chimpanzee’s housing infrastructure and the provision of their daily care, dietary, and medical needs.

When Primate Keepers at Taronga Zoo, Holly, Katie, Katharine, Richard, Tracey and Scott heard about the chimps situation they decided that they had to help and organise a fundraising dinner. All profits from the dinner will go directly to JGIA and Burundi Chimp Project.

Enjoy a 2 course dinner, silent auction and guest speakers all in support of safeguarding the future of this endangered species. Funds raised will provide necessary resources including food, medical care, enrichment activties and improved facilielies, enabling them to live a life that closely resembles their natural habitat.

Together, we can make a meaningful different and secure a brighter future for them and the ecosystems they inhabit.

When: Saturday 2 September 2023 6:30 PM – 10:30 PM
