Still confined, with no income at the primate sanctuary

Tags : 

Covid-19 has greatly affected our society. Our health and that of our loved ones has been threatened.

Primates lucky to live in MONA are also threatened, because it has been proven that they can become infected. But they cannot be taken to the ICU, nor do they maintain social distance. To keep them out of harm’s way, we canceled all activities and closed access to MONA even before confinement was mandatory, because we are terrified about the consequences of the virus entering the rescue center.

ElTenedor withdraws the chimp from their latests advert

Tags : 

ElTenedor, the well-known restaurant booking app, recently used a young chimpanzee for their latest publicity campaign.

From Fundació MONA we launched a petition demanding that the brand commits to not use wild animals in their advertising, given the harsh conditions they have to endure.

After more than 36,000 people signed the petition on in only  a few days, ElTenedor has announced that they will withdraw the advert and have committed not to use chimpanzees or other wild animals again in their commercials.

We want to congratulate ElTenedor for making the right decision and being so receptive to our message. Surely they will be an inspiration for many other companies that due to ignorance continue to use primates and other species in their advertising campaigns.

Thanks to and the 36,441 people that have been involved and have made this great achievement happen.
