Jan 24, 2008Primates helping Primates...

We had an opportunity to help out apes around the world by documenting the creation of their works on canvas. The artwork will be auctioned off to support organizations responding to the plight of apes around the world. Scientist predict that several species of apes will be extinct in the wild within 10-20 years. Several factors are threats to apes well being and survival. These include deforestation, disease and poaching. 
You also can make a difference by visiting Ape Conservation Effort and attending the upcoming Apes in the Arts Auction! 
This is Dumadi- he is 19 months old. He really liked the camera. We think it was the reflection in the lens....

This is Daisy. She added a personal touch with her fingertips...

This is 5 year old Bernas (aka Junior)

Dumadi- in action!

This is Laura. She is the assistant curator of primates at Zoo Atlanta.
