Become a Volunteer

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Save the Chimps. Caring for nearly 250 rescued chimpanzees is a 365 day a year job. We couldn’t do it without the help of our devoted volunteers.

Top 5 Reasons to Volunteer at Save the Chimps:

  1. You will lead by example – developing, promoting, and assisting in programs that benefit the chimps.
  2. You’ll save the Sanctuary resources, so more money can be spent directly on the chimps.
  3. You’ll spend time with others who share your passion for chimpanzees…while making 900 peanut butter & jelly sandwiches for the chimps to eat!
  4. You’ll put a smile on a chimp’s face when they discover the enrichment you made for them – hidden on their island.
  5. You will make a difference in the lives of nearly 250 rescued chimpanzees – it’s your support that makes our work possible and gives the chimps the lives they deserve.

…All while hearing the  wonderful sounds of chimpanzees pant-hooting and roaming their beautiful island home.
