We share 98.6% of our genetic DNA with chimpanzees - but our wild cousins are in trouble.

Ol Pejeta has been advocating for the plight of chimpanzees and other great apes since 1993 – when we first opened the Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary. The Sanctuary aims to provide a refuge for chimpanzees rescued from the black market, and is the only place in Kenya where these fascinating animals can be seen.
