Paint for Bonobos!

Paint Your Own Pottery For Bonobos!  Friday, August 6, 2010 from 6pm to 10pm 

Let’s fire up the fun!  Here’s how it works: Color Me Mine is a paint-your-own pottery studio where you choose an unfinished piece of pottery, paint it, leave it for firing and glazing, and return a week later to pick it up. Other event highlights: raffle, video presentation on apes painting, special appearance by an ape character, trivia and prizes.

Don’t miss out on this awesome opportunity to support bonobos and make a one-of-a-kind keepsake! Proceeds from the event benefit the Bonobo Conservation Initiative's mission to protect the bonobo, an endangered great ape, and its rainforest habitat in the Congo. To learn more, visit www.bonobo.org

Help Jared Harrison Help Bonobos!

Help Jared Harrison, a 12-year-old from the Cayman Islands, help bonobos! Jared researched bonobos for a school project and now wants to share his new found interest in the species with Cayman Islanders and the world.

“I was touched by how peaceful and kind they are,” he said. “Other primates, including us, have wars, kill each other, and have a hard time sharing. Bonobos are so different. When they get upset about something, they just hug it out. We can actually learn from them. They cooperate and take care of each other so well. They’re extraordinary.”

Jared challenged Cayman Islanders to donate to BCI in an effort to save these rare and peaceful primates. You can help Jared in his efforts! Click here to donate now

If you are interested in forming a kid’s conservation club, please contact Jared at jaredconservation@gmail.com and he will provide more information.
