* From the sale of each ape t-shirt, we will donate part of the proceeds to Ape Action Africa in Cameroon, Africa, where Shai the gorilla lives *
We love this happy photograph of Ape Action Africa Director Rachel Hogan carrying Shai the female Gorilla in the rainforest in Cameroon. Twenty gorillas live with Rachel and her ape conservation team at Mefou Primate Park animal sanctuary. Shai, along with all but one of the other gorillas are orphans of the illegal bushmeat trade.
This photograph shows Shai happily walking back from a day playing in the rainforest way back in 2003.
Why are apes in Africa in danger?
They are often illegally killed for their meat which is considered a delicacy. Animal rightsare not considered. Chimpanzee, bonobo and gorilla numbers are unsustainable. We must find a way of living a cruelty-free existence with other species. A vegan diet is the best approach to protect the planet and prevent climate change. Please act now to savethe environment.
Habitat loss is one of the major threats to the long term survival of Africa's primates. Illegal logging has cleared huge areas of the rainforest because of demand for tropical hard wood from western countries, in particular Europe. With the disappearance of the rainforest goes the world's carbon sinks, worsening global warming.
