Save the Chimps!

Fact: Chimps are hilarious. Fact: Chimps in the wild are on the verge of extinction. The three greatest threats to their existence are deforestation of their habitat, the shooting of mothers to sell their infants, and poaching for meat. That's right, people are actually hunting and eating chimps!

Fact: You can help save the chimps! Become a Chimpanzee Gaurdian through The Jane Goodall Institute, and you will receive plush chimps just like these guys. Get five, or ten, or line your cube with them. Go chimps!
