Another way of supporting SOS Primates is through businesses who would like to order any of our handmade crafts from the Congo, or those we make here. They make excellent corporate gifts. Get in touch with us today! All donations will be sent to Lwiro Primates, where the team continues working extremely hard to rehabilitate [...]


Collaborate with € 1 per month

An adult chimpanzee eats 5kg of food (fruit and vegetables, among other things) a day. Now imagine multiplying that by the 98 chimpanzees at Lwiro Primates. Many of them are small, like Tongo in the photo, and you may think this reduces costs. However, infants drink powdered baby formula, and even at Lwiro Primates the [...]


Cleaning of Platja de Llevant

On Saturday we had our beach cleanup day, organised by SOS Primates as part of LET’S CLEAN UP EUROPE. All habitats are connected; the ocean, the forest and their inhabitants, including primates... even the residents of Lwiro Primates, who we so desperately want to help. That’s why we wanted to take this symbolic action to raise [...]

Let’s clean Europe

Here at SOS Primates we have a global perspective of the planet’s problems and of conservation in general. All habitats are connected - the ocean, the forest, the rainforest and many more - as well as their inhabitants, including primates, so we’ve organised a beach cleanup for Saturday 8th May in Barcelona, as part of [...]


Sant Jordi, a great day of solidarity

2021-05-03T09:09:33+01:00Wednesday, 28 April, 2021|

The Day of Sant Jordi was a great success for SOS Primates, although it required a huge team effort. We’d like to thank everyone who made this possible: Maria Valuènh who made the roses for us without using plastic, only biodegradable materials; Èlia Vives who acted as a courier for those who lived [...]

Lwiro Primates is continuing in its daily efforts to care for more than 200 primates. Working while wearing a mask and extra protection is more tiring for everyone, but the team continue to stay alert to any behavioural or feeding changes, for example in this red-tailed monkey. Here at SOS Primates we’re still working hard [...]
