Who we are

Chimfunshi e.V. is committed to the protection of endangered chimpanzees and supports the Chimfunshi Wildlife Orphanage in Zambia. It is the largest sanctuary for chimpanzees that no longer have a natural home. Over 150 chimpanzees and numerous local wild animals are cared for and looked after here. About 70 staff members and their families live on the premises. Chimfunshi provides them with work, housing, medical care and runs a school for more than 220 local children.

SPECIAL CAMPAIGN

Chimp Artists

Some chimpanzees love brushes and canvas. The result: 30 colorful paintings from small to large (from 15 x 15 cm to about 50 x 60 cm). If you want to support our chimpanzees, help us with a donation. If you would like to receive a work of chimp art, please make a generous donation and note in the message field: "Animal Welfare" and your address. We will ship the 30 paintings (at our expense) to the most generous December donors early in the year. All donations will go to the Chimfunshi Wildlife Orphanage Zambia and will be used for the care and wellbeing of our 150 chimpanzees.

The most wonderful place on earth.

More than an orphanage

Chimfunshi Wildlife Orphanage is one of only three orphanages in Africa that takes in endangered chimpanzees from around the world and cares for them for life. Chimfunshi is also one of the last places in Zambia's Copperbelt region where fauna and flora are protected. On Chimfunshi's thousands of hectares of land, Zambian wildlife is rescued, rehabilitated and released.

And Chimfunshi provides housing and access to medical care for hundreds of people who work for the project or live nearby. Thousands of children are made aware of nature and species conservation at Chimfunshi each year.
