Due to devastating effects of the bushmeat trade, our closest living relative, the bonobo, is almost lost forever.  The World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) aims to raise awareness of this preventable tragedy through an attention grabbing education campaign launching on June 29 in Toronto.

A costumed “mother ape” roaming the streets of Toronto’s financial district looking for her missing baby will kick-off WSPA’s campaign.  The month-long initiative will also feature a take on the “lost dog” flyers, with posters up around the city aimed at raising awareness of the plight of bonobos, as well as bears (tortured as part of brutal bear baiting events) and whales (thousands hunted and killed every year).

“The extinction of the bonobo is a very real possibility in our lifetime; we want to draw attention to this fact and to the needless suffering endured by bears and whales around the world.  People need to know what is happening and how they can stop it” says WSPA Canada’s Executive Director, Josey Kitson.

To take action visit WSPA’s website at and text WSPA to 30333 to donate $5.

Join the World Society for the Protection of Animals (and our mother ape) on June 29th 2011, 11:30am to 4:30 pm at the  northwest corner of King St. & Bay St. for the start of the campaign.

This will be a great photo/video opportunity.
