Nine Ways to Help Chimpanzees and Other Great Apes
Cast your dollar vote
1 Don’t support movies, circuses, roadside zoos or live entertainment that use chimpanzees or other great apes to entertain. Writing a letter to the editor is a great way of letting others know the conditions they endure for our amusement.
2 Boycott products that use chimpanzees in their advertising campaigns. Contact the companies and explain why you won’t support the exploitation of great apes to sell products. Most companies have toll-free numbers, or a brief letter can make your point.
