Mark Burke-Damaschke sponsored today for the chimps in honor of Caroline Burke-Damaschke to coincide with the first ever World Chimpanzee Day! Mark shared that he wanted to sponsor this special day “For a worthy cause in allowing chimps to live out their lives in security and happiness and Caroline and her tireless dedication to animal well-being for World Chimp Day.”
And if you haven’t heard yet, the Jane Goodall Institute came together with many partners to include other non-profits (including Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest), organizations and individuals to create the first ever World Chimpanzee Day celebration to be held on July 14th. July 14th, 1960 is the date Dr. Jane Goodall first stepped foot into Gombe Stream National Park to study wild chimpanzees. World Chimpanzee Day is a celebration of the very special individuals chimpanzees are and the opportunity to raise worldwide awareness of the need to protect, care for, and conserve chimpanzees both in the wild and in captivity.
Mark, thank you for sponsoring this exciting new day of celebration in honor of Caroline and all she does to help our fellow animals! We truly appreciate you including the chimpanzees in your gift and making a difference in their lives.
Caroline, thank you for your heart and dedication to improving the well-being of animals and for all you do to make their lives better!
