Calendar Pick of the Week: Great Ape Awareness Week

It's Great Ape Awareness Week at the San Diego Zoo...check it out!

What: Every day throughout the event the Zoo’s three great ape species – gorillas, bonobos, and orangutans – will be spotlighted with animal enrichment sessions at each habitat followed by keeper talks addressing issues impacting great apes, such as the bushmeat crisis and habitat loss due to illegal logging, slash-and-burn farming practices, and the removal of rainforests for palm oil plantations in Indonesia. Special graphic panels at each great ape enclosure will feature photos and information about conservation efforts and ways people can help.

Where: The San Diego Zoo

When: All week long!
