This is Gordo. He’s a small guy who communicates the world with just his eyes. He was used in a biomedical research laboratory before being retired to a Los Angeles refuge that unexpectedly shut in 2019. He is receiving care in the interim, but our #ChimpsInNeed emergency fundraiser is working hard to rehome Gordo and his group to Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest as quickly as possible. If enough money is raised for the sanctuary to prepare for them, we can move ALL the remaining chimps this year! Plus, all donations are currently doubled right now thanks to an anonymous foundation.
