Bonobos share 98.7% of their genetic code with humans

Bonobos are found only in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) between the Congo River, the Lomami River, the Kasai/Sankuru Rivers, and Lake Tumba/Lac Ndombe region.

Bonobos can survive in close proximity to human communities that are willing to co-habitate with these peaceful apes.

Recent surveys show that many areas had bonobos 20 years ago and now they have none.

The Bonobo Project is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that seeks to elevate the status and awareness of the endangered bonobo and coordinate activities to aid in the conservation of this uniquely matriarchal and peaceful great ape indigenous only to the Democratic Republic of Congo.

With the bonobo classified as endangered on the IUCN Red List with an estimated 15,000 left in the wild, we are at a critical juncture to act now to build greater awareness in the U.S. so that the dedicated bonobo activists and academics can be provided more support as they continue their efforts on behalf of saving the bonobo.

100% of all donations to the Bonobo Project are used for conservation and awareness efforts.  Your donation will help save bonobos in the Congo and raise the awareness in the United States.

Recent donations to other organizations include:

Wamba Committee for Bonobo Research at the Luo Scientific Reserve
Our donation went to four main community development projects:

  1. Repair and construction of bridges
  2. Funding for the construction of furniture for the local hospital
  3. Repair of structures for the local market
  4. Funding for an iron corrugated roof for the local secondary school

Lola Ya Bonobo
Our donation assisted with the costs of the running the sanctuary, including the rescue, rehabilitation and release of bonobos.
