"I am proud to support Friends of Bonobos in their work to protect and rehabilitate Bonobos. When I learned about the incredible beauty, compassion and intellect of Bonobos I was simultaneously in awe and in despair at how little the world knows of these creatures . Thank you FOB for your continued efforts!"
