What is the bonobo’s biggest threat? Sadly, it’s people. Activities like hunting and deforestation are wiping out bonobo populations faster than these primates can reproduce. Smarter land management and greater community involvement will be key to saving the species.
Bonobos are one of humankind’s closest living relatives, sharing more than 98% of our DNA. These great apes are complex beings with profound intelligence, emotional expression, and sensitivity. In contrast to the competitive, male-dominated culture of chimpanzees, bonobo society is peaceful, matriarchal, and more egalitarian.
Bonobos - our closest relatives. There's no moral difference between the animals, birds, fish, and insects we hunt, those we use for entertainment, those we kill for food and use as commodities, and those we love as members of our families. All animals, birds, fish and insects are sentient and have a right to live. Go vegan and stay vegan for them. It's the least we can do.
