This month, the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) launches a third crowd funding campaign for 2014 to raise $64,000 by September 17, 2014 to create seven new episodes of the very popular children's video series Super Kodo. With 13 episodes already created, the series has been incredibly popular across many communities in the Republic of Congo where it was created. Helping young people understand the impact of their everyday behaviors, the video series inspires them to care about the environment we share.
I am outraged by the killing of chimpanzees and other imperiled wildlife species for the commercial bushmeat trade—a shortsighted and cruel practice that is pushing great apes and other endangered species to the brink of extinction.
As your constituent, I strongly urge you to support legislation to discourage the bushmeat trade and other destructive activities—like irresponsible logging and mining practices—that contribute to it.
