At last it is in our hands, and soon will be in yours, the new story of Bongo in the english version, the first book of the collection “Little story of a chimpanzee“.
This project is born from the enthusiasm and desire of the Fundació Mona team to continue working for the welfare of primates, because we know that the problems they face can be solved by raising awareness about the need to protect nature and our evolutionary relatives closest.
It have been long months of hard work creating, devising and taking care of the smallest details of this book that, at last, has stopped being a dream to become a reality. A book that, in addition, includes an educational guide with which continue learning about Bongo, the chimpanzees and the work that Mona does.
The story of Bongo is the perfect book to read to your children, nephews or grandchildren, just as Bongo’s mother told him stories before going to sleep.
Buy it and help us so that no more chimpanzees have to remember what it was like living in the wild: its family, the smell of wet after the rain, the chirping of birds or the buzzing of insects.
The story of Bongo is now available in our online shop and also in the physical store, in the Primate Recovery Center in Riudellots de la Selva (Girona) and, of course, all the benefits obtained from purchasing it will be destined to the care of the primates rescued by Mona.Buy Bongo’s story!
This project would not have been possible without the illusion, joy, positivity and enthusiasm of Blanca Martí, who has illustrated and written this story, making us travel between beautiful words and the soft and delicate strokes of her drawings.
We can not and we do not want to forget about Mona Educa, our Education department, a fundamental part in the creation of the educational guide and, of course, the rest of the Mona team, which is involved and goes out of it way daily in its work and was not different this time.
And last, but not least, you, the one who is reading this publication. If this story exists, it is thanks to you and your commitment to the welfare of primates.
