Providing chimpanzees in sanctuaries with quality of life.

We made a promise to the Fauna Foundation chimpanzees for a lifetime of the quality care they so deserve. Will you help us?

The Rising Costs of Care

Caring for chimpanzees in sanctuaries is very costly. The annual cost to care for just one chimpanzee is typically no less than $20,000 per year. Much of that goes to pay for food and medicine. Other costs include maintenance and daily operations.

The donations and support we get from people just like you around the world, who share our love and commitment to the residents of Fauna Foundation and other chimpanzee sanctuaries around the world, makes our work possible. Will you help us make a difference?

Yes, I Can Help!

All of the residents of Fauna Foundation now enjoy the freedom to be themselves, and are no longer obligated to work, provide food, entertain, act as human companions, be tools to teach, or do medical research.
