My friend's sister is behind this manifesto. Donovan and I have both signed. Now I'm passing it along to you:
Tropical forests are disappearing at an accelerating pace and with them go the last populations of great apes. Knowledgeable specialists working with great apes and/or nature conservation are unanimous in their thinking: if we do nothing, gorillas, chimpanzees and bonobos will have disappeared by the middle of the 21st century. For orang-utans, the situation is even more dramatic: in twenty years time, they may exist only in zoos.
Today, urgent action is needed in order to Save the Great Apes !!!
