The Section on Small Apes (SSA) is working with our partners around the world to raise funds during Year of the Gibbon for conservation of gibbons in their natural habitat. Fund raising events are being held by concerned institutions and individuals across the globe, with a focus on World Gibbon Day – 24th October.
The SSA is pooling together all the money raised into a single fund – the “Save the Gibbon Fund.” At the end of 2015, and after the closing of the Year of the Gibbon, the SSA will make a call for proposals. We will invite all of those working for the conservation of gibbons to submit a brief proposal outlining how they would spend the funds. An independent panel made from SSA membership and with no affiliation with the proposals submitted, will be formed to assess the winner(s). We will then follow the development of this project through the SSA website. A particular focus for the award will be on new projects developed by habitat country nationals to help the development of capacity for gibbon conservation in-country.
Details for applications will be available on the SSA website and Facebook Page from December 2015.
