All of the great ape species are endangered in the wild. In the absence of effective protection of habitat, scientists predict that several species of apes will likely be extinct in the very near future.

About Ape Conservation Effort

Ape Conservation Effort, Inc. (ACE), a Georgia not-for-profit 501(c)(3) corporation, is comprised of volunteer members who share a passion for animals and a commitment to saving the great apes (bonobos, chimpanzees, gorillas, and orangutans).

Members of ACE hope to raise awareness of the plight of the great apes and support for their conservation. ACE conducts fundraising activities from which 100% of profits will be distributed to internationally recognized organizations that work in the animals' homelands of Africa and Indonesia to save these animals from extinction and conserve their native habitats.
