Next Sep­tem­ber 1st is Inter­na­tio­nal Pri­ma­te Day #Inter­na­tio­nal­Pri­ma­te­Day, #DiaIn­ter­na­cio­nal­Pri­ma­tes, ins­ti­tu­tio­na­li­sed in 2014 by seve­ral Latin Ame­ri­can pri­ma­to­logy asso­cia­tions, with the aim of reflec­ting on the threats faced by dif­fe­rent spe­cies and calling for their conservation.

SOS Pri­ma­tes has been cele­bra­ting it sin­ce 2017 and in 2019 held a com­pe­ti­tion to crea­te a logo and give it more visibility.

On the wee­kend of 28th and 29th of August, we will have an infor­ma­tion stand at Bar­ce­lo­na Zoo, Madrid Zoo Aqua­rium, and Zoo­bo­tá­ni­co Jerez on Satur­day 28th. In all of them, we will collect dona­tions and the­re will be pro­ducts to help the CRPL, Lwi­ro Pri­ma­tes, in DR Congo.

Some of the acti­vi­ties for this wee­kend are Story­te­lling and a T‑shirt workshop in Bar­ce­lo­na or an infor­ma­ti­ve talk in Jerez. We are wai­ting for you!

Bili and Tete­me­ko, in the pho­to, will be wai­ting in Con­go to see how the day goes.

(If you work in a zoo­lo­gi­cal ins­ti­tu­tion with pri­ma­tes, be it a zoo, a sanc­tuary or a reha­bi­li­ta­tion cen­tre that follows inter­na­tio­nal regu­la­tions, plea­se con­tact us so that we can be pre­sent next year).
