The Barcelona Zoo and SOS Primates are sending clothing and work equipment from our facilities to the Primate Recovery Center (CRPL) in Lwiro, a city in the province of South Kivu, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). The Zoo’s collaboration with CRPL started on 2010, through the grants awarded by the Barcelona Zoo Foundation, aimed at the conservation, research and reintroduction of endangered species.
