Celebrate World Chimpanzee Day – July 14, 2023!

Dr. Goodall Calls Chimpanzee Advocates To Join In To Increase Understanding & Action On Behalf of Chimpanzees

About World Chimpanzee Day

In honor of humankind’s closest living relative, World Chimpanzee Day is a celebration of an extraordinary species: chimpanzees!

On July 14th, we celebrate these remarkable beings and raise awareness about the vital need for worldwide participation in their welfare, protection, and conservation. July 14, 1960 is the day Dr. Jane Goodall first stepped foot in what is now Gombe Stream National Park, Tanzania, to study wild chimpanzees. Dr. Goodall called attention to the remarkable chimpanzee and to this day advocates on their behalf. With each of us making a difference, we can ensure a future for chimpanzees in the wild and in captivity.

Today, we carry the torch. The founding organizations of World Chimpanzee Day aim to empower communities everywhere to take action on behalf of chimpanzees to ensure a secure and hopeful future for this magnificent species.

Join us in celebrating World Chimpanzee Day on July 14!

On July 14th, and every day, we celebrate this unique and vital species.

Just like us, like no other.

Goals of World Chimpanzee Day:
Celebrate our closest living relative in the animal kingdom.

Improve understanding by educating global audiences about their uniqueness and innate value as a species, as well as their importance to ecosystems.

Raise awareness and inspire action about threats they face in the wild including habitat loss, disease, and wildlife trafficking, while also advocating for their welfare in captive situations.
