About us

Ape Action Africa is passionate about primate conservation in Africa - protecting Cameroon's great apes and monkeys through direct action. Our front line conservation work includes rescuing orphaned gorillas, chimpanzees and monkeys, providing them with individual care, and giving them a safe forest sanctuary home where they can live with their own kind.

Dancing for Donations

Event dates: Monday 15th August 2022 – Thursday 25th August 2022

Get your dancing shoes on and get #dancingfordonations!

Interpret the dance moves being beautifully demonstrated by our team in the forest and the very talented Izzy Masters (@isabelmastersdancer), raise money for the orphans who have found safety at our sanctuary and be in with a chance of winning an exclusive video of a primate of your choice, from the forest!

Get #boogyingforbananas and encourage your family and friends to get involved. Simply upload a video of you all getting your groove on to each person's social media channels, tag #apeactionafrica, #giveasyoulive and #dancingfordonations, and make a minimum £10 donation each to our campaign.

How can your donation help?

£10 can buy a set of overalls for a caregiver to protect themselves while cleaning out the primate's overnight sleeping quarters.

£20 can buy milk for our newest orphan chimpanzee, Gwyn, for a week

£50 can buy food for one of our magnificent mandrills, for one month

£100 can pay for the care of an infant gorilla for one month

£250 can buy the materials for a new play platform in the nursery chimpanzee group

What more can you ask for? Have fun participating in #dancingfordonations in the knowledge you're making a real difference in the lives of our orphaned primates and the dedicated staff who care for them 365 days of the year.

By achieving our target, we will be able to cover the costs of FIVE primates' food, veterinary care, and safe forest home for the rest of the year.

Thank you to Izzy (@isabelmastersdancer) for producing these fabulous dance videos for us; it's now over to you, our supporters, to interpret them in the most fabulous and creative ways possible!
