On this page you can follow the link to the International organisation called GAP- (Great Ape Project) and sign its "Declaration on Great Apes"

The Great Ape Project ( GAP ), founded by Italian philosopher Paola Cavalieri and Australian philosopher Peter Singer , is campaigning to have the United Nations endorse a Declaration on Great Apes . This would extend what the project calls the "community of equals" to chimpanzees , bonobos , gorillas and orangutans .

The declaration seeks to extend to non-human great apes the protection of three basic interests: the right to life, the protection of individual liberty , and the prohibition of torture .
