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.
