How to participate and support the Limbe Wildlife Centre this #GivingDayforApes

Giving Day for Apes 2023 is nearly here! This year, we are appealing for your help to reach our goal of $30,000 for our orphan apes at the Limbe Wildlife Centre in celebration of our 30th anniversary.

Giving Day for Apes is an annual global contest, where ape sanctuaries compete to raise the most money and win additional prizes. The Limbe Wildlife Centre needs your help more than ever. For 30 years, the LWC has provided a safe and secure second chance for apes in desperate need. As victims of cruel wildlife trade, many of them has seen their families killed, been confined in horrendous and inhumane conditions for years, and even been beaten by their captors. They often arrive suffering psychological trauma, physical wounds, malnourishment, and infections.

Apes are just like us… They need a home, security, family, food, water, medical care, entertainment. This is why we need your help to keep doing our important work. Funds from Giving Day for Apes will help fulfil the daily needs of the 55 apes under our care.

To make it as easy as possible for you, we have put together a table of the times for the big day. You can help us by donating (as little as $5!) and encouraging all your friends and family to donate during the “most unique donors” power hour, and by making your large contributions during the “most dollars raised” power hour. We have the chance to win an additional $2,500 if we win these categories!

We can not wait to see you on the 3rd of October for videos, quizzes and games. You can visit our Giving Day page here. You can see the full detailed schedule here.
