International Primate Day
International Primate Day aims to raise global awareness about the diverse variety of primates and the many threats they face. These threats range from habitat loss and deforestation to the illegal pet trade and diseases. Many species are now on the brink of extinction, and this day serves as a reminder of our responsibility to protect them. Educational programs, fundraisers, and awareness campaigns around the globe aim to inspire individuals, communities, and governments to take action and contribute to the conservation of our closest genetic relatives.
