Why? How could you not love that face! Vacation rewind from January 28, 2008.
OK, technically that should be “primates” or chimpanzees. But it was just too much fun typing “Monkeys!”
As part of the ongoing Animal Week here on the blog, today I want to give a shout out to the Jane Goodall Institute, which since 1977 has focused on education, conservation and development, and wildlife research, as well as its best-known projects, the Chimpanzee Sanctuaries in various parts of Africa. As our friends at Care2 note, “from fostering micro-businesses in Tanzania to educating young people about conservation, the Institute’s programs make the world a better place for people, animals, and the environment.” Even in the midst of a manic Monday (I know, I’m having one, too), you can support the Goodall Institute with a free click on Care2’s Race to Save the Primates. Free to you, the site sponsors make a donation for the Goodall Institute’s chimp protection programs for each click.
Today’s mitzvah: Try a free click to aid in primate protection — and get a pick-me-up with some very cute chimp photos!
