The Visionary Activist Show - April 17, 2008

Protecting Bonobos!
Saving the World! "Waaah! Waaah!" (Bonobo greeting)


Caroline welcomes Sally Jewell Coxe, president and co-founder of the Washington DC based non-profit Bonobo Conservation Initiative, whose work in the war-torn Congo with conservationists, villagers, and  President Joseph Kabila, is creating not only the nearly 12,000 square mile Sankuru preserve, working intimately to improve the lives of villagers, but creates a crucial protypical model of indigenous people and their environmental kin in a dynamic relationship of reciprocal blessing.
The bonobos, human's closest DNA kin, who resolve pretty much everything with eros (as opposed to violence) desperately need our help.
"I believe if we save the bonobos, we save ourselves," Andre' Tusumba, conservationist leader in the effort to create the Bonobo Peace Village.
