Friends of Bonobos is the US charity that supports Lola ya Bonobo Sanctuary in the Democratic Republic of Congo.  Lola is not only the world's only bonobo sanctuary and site of the first bonobo release in Congo but also where the Hominoid Psychology Research Group conducts its tests of bonobo cognition.

We support Friends of Bonobos' mission by increasing bonobo awareness at community events and in classrooms, as well as by organizing fundraisers.

Please visit their external website, http://www.friendsofbonobos.org/,  to learn more about the organization.

We represented Friends of Bonobos at the 2012 North Carolina Pride Festival.  It was a rainy day, but that didn't dampen people's spirits; we got lots of cheers while marching in the parade, and visitors to our booth were very  enthusiastic to learn about bonobos!
