Chimpanzees In Need

"A campaign led by NAPSA in collaboration with 7th Generation Advisors, with support from California Department of Fish and Wildlife."

WATCH NOW: This compelling film short by Shaun Monson stars Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara, who tell the poignant story of the original 42 “Chimpanzees in Need,” left when the Wildlife Waystation unexpectedly closed.

There are 26 chimpanzees awaiting rescue at the closed Wildlife Waystation in Southern California. They urgently need to be rehomed from this facility that is no longer operational, has an inadequate water source, and is under constant threat from wildfires. Money to care for the chimps is rapidly running dry. But there is hope, and with your help we can get them out. We are working with several reputable, highly qualified sanctuaries to rehome these chimpanzees, but we need to raise funds to build appropriate living spaces for them at the sanctuaries.

Chimpanzees in Need is an emergency fundraising effort led by NAPSA and fiscally sponsored by 7th Generation Advisors, a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation that donates their services in support of this urgent fund to ensure all donations are tax deductible. All donations will be accepted and administered by 7th Generation Advisors. The coalition works in collaboration with California Department of Fish and Wildlife which is managing the closed Wildlife Waystation. Everything raised goes directly toward the continuing care and rehoming efforts for the chimpanzees.

This is a unique rescue effort and there’s no time to waste. These chimpanzees need us now. Will you help?

We need your help funding the chimpanzees’ current care!


Providing specialized care and building appropriate living spaces for chimpanzees is very expensive. Chimpanzees are smart, strong and have complex social, emotional and physical needs. It costs $100,000 per month to care for these chimpanzees, and to rehome them all will take $5.8 million for construction and safe transfer to accredited sanctuaries. The chimps at the Waystation are living in distinct social groups and the goal is to rehome each social group intact.

Together, we can make it happen. Their lives began in research labs – they deserve better than this. Will you help?

You can make a difference at any level:

Gives expert medical care to chimpanzees each month
Provides propane to keep chimpanzees warm each month
Provides nutrient-rich food to chimpanzees each month

Please be assured NAPSA and their expert advisors will use your gift where it is needed most to rehome the chimpanzees as quickly as possible.
