Worthington Industries Presents: Saving Apes: The role of African sanctuaries
Date:May 21, 2009
Time:7:30 P.M.
Cost:$15.00 per person (all proceeds benefit the Pan African Sanctuary Alliance)
All three species of African great apes (gorillas, chimpanzees, and bonobos) and many other primates are threatened with extinction. The Pan African Sanctuary Alliance (PASA) is “committed to the conservation and care of African primates through the unique alliance of African sanctuaries.”
In May, 2009, the Columbus Zoo will host delegates from PASA sanctuaries across Africa for their 10th anniversary meeting. This will be the first time the group has met outside of Africa. A public event at the OSU Fawcett Center on May 21, 2009, will feature speakers from several of the sanctuaries, a silent auction of African art from 14 countries, and an opportunity for guests to speak to sanctuary managers about their heroic efforts on behalf of Africa’s endangered apes and monkeys.

Featuring Harvard primatologist Dr. Richard Wrangham and Doug Cress, Executive Director of the Pan African Sanctuary Alliance

Tickets will also be available for purchase at the door May 21, 2009, at the OSU Fawcett Center.
