Get involved. Speak out. You can positively impact the lives of both free-living and captive populations by writing letters, calling your representatives, supporting sanctuaries, or simply boycotting the use of chimpanzees to sell products. You can make a difference. Friends of Washoe is committed to making a difference in the lives of chimpanzees. We are a part of a world-wide community of other caring organizations that are making a difference in the lives of captive and free-living chimpanzees. Watch our Action Alerts page for current campaigns to support chimpanzee welfare.
