Chimp Guardianship Programme


The Chimp Eden Guardianship Programme enables individuals and organisations around the world to become a guardian of the chimpanzees who call JGI SA Chimp Eden home. You can become a guardian of a chimp for a 12 month period by choosing any of the chimps at the sanctuary. You can also take any number of chimpanzees into your care. The funds which are raised through the chimpanzee guardianship programme will be used for the welfare of the chimpanzees and the daily operations of the sanctuary.
