PEGAS hosted a media event at Serena Sweetwaters Tented Camp on the Ol Pejeta Conservancy. Several journalists attended and were briefed on the trafficking crisis facing great apes and the objectives of PEGAS to put an end to it. Here are two of the articles the media event produced: “Slavery” driving apes to extinction, conservationists say and The story of the traffic in Africa’s great apes.
