Help the bonobos win a $150,000 donation!—
The Bonobo Conservation Initiative is excited to announce that we have joined the Newman’s Own Foundation $500K Holiday Challenge! It’s a friendly fundraising campaign launched by Newman’s Own Foundation where non-profit organizations compete to raise the most money– and top teams win grand prize cash donations!
Great progress continues in the Yetee forest of the Kokolopori Bonobo Reserve! The team of scientists, led by Dr. Martin Surbeck of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology (MPI), has been working every day to gain new information about the three bonobo groups in the area. Collaboration with the local community continues, and new camera traps are yielding fascinating results!
Wildlife Conservation Expo and Bioneers—
Conferences are a wonderful way for like-minded individuals and organizations to communicate, collaborate, and inspire. In October, BCI had the privilege of participating in two exciting conferences in the San Francisco Bay area: Wildlife Conservation Expo and Bioneers 2017.
