Doug Cress, Great Apes' Survival Partnership (GRASP) Programme coordinator, on the importance of protecting great apes during the 2nd meeting of the GRASP Council:
“Within GRASP, we have a saying that their fate is ours, and it's true: if we can't protect great apes, we simply cannot protect ourselves, either.”

The GRASP Council—coordinated by the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) and UNESCO—held its second meeting at UNESCO Headquarters from 6 to 8 November to define a new strategy to protect these endangered primates, whose numbers have continued to decline.
