SOS Primates is made up of a multidisciplinary team of committed people who work in the fields of primatology, animal wellbeing and biodiversity conservation. The majority have worked and helped in primate rescue centres in various countries, experiencing first-hand the situation facing this group of animals. In fact, it was at the Lwiro Primate Rehabilitation Centre, in the east of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, that the idea to create SOS Primates was born, due to the constant arrival of baby chimpanzees from the illegal trafficking industry and the urgent need for more financial help to allow the project to continue. This is how our two co-founders, Laia Dotras and Raúl Cabrera, founded SOS Primates in 2012, with the aim of educating people about the different issues affecting primates and supporting projects working to conserve these species. Accompanied by people with other skills who want to help the cause in their own way, we hope to continue growing and to be able to count on your support.
