  • APES, with many other organizations dedicated to animals, responded to the destruction of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. We arrived for a 4-week commitment in New Orleans at rescue headquarters with a truckload of medical and other supplies. There was a constant and immediate need for supportive care of the thousands of dogs, cats, and horses at the shelter and a more urgent need for field rescue.
  • Dan-Dan is a Hoolock Gibbon, a highly endangered species and victim of the illegal pet trade in Myanmar. We literally pulled over to check on the gibbon. He'd been purchased by the father of the house during a business trip to an outlying village where Dan-Dan's mother had been poached and he as a baby taken to sell. Our guide and interpreter is also a veterinarian at the zoo. He informed the family that Dan-Dan was acquired and being held illegally, and encouraged them to relinquish him to the zoo (Myanmar does not permit sanctuaries).
