Help Protect Endangered Species with the Aspinall Foundation
It is not alarmist to talk of possible extinction. But if we act now, act fast, there’s a real chance we can save them. We know what needs to be done. We just need to make it happen.
Damian Aspinall, Trustee, The Aspinall Foundation talking about the Javan gibbon
The Aspinall Foundation is an animal conservation charity, who, working with Howletts and Port Lympne Wild Animal Parks in Kent is devoted to saving rare and endangered animals, and, wherever possible returning them to protected areas in the wild.
The Aspinall Foundation has a solid background in the breeding and reintroduction of threatened species, in particular two long-standing rehabilitation and reintroduction projects in Congo and Gabon for western lowland gorillas. We have also recently launched a new project to protect the critically endangered greater bamboo lemur in Madagascar and have entered into the planning stage for our newly created project to save the endangered Javan gibbon.
Their most successful work has been our gorilla reintroduction project, in Africa where we have successfully reintroduced over 50 gorillas to protected areas. Nine are hand-reared individuals originating from the highly successful breeding programmes at our wild animal parks in Kent. There have been 16 births from these reintroduced groups since 2004, real hopes for the future of this critically endangered species!
