GRASP launches new ‘Smart’ design website

The Great Apes Survival Partnership (GRASP) has launched a new ‘Smart’ design website this week, March 2015. It offers important information about chimpanzees, gorillas, orangutans and bonobos with sections on each species, a library of videos, publications, news releases and a calendar of international events.

The Great Apes Survival Partnership (GRASP) is a United Nations initiative that was founded in response to the critical threats facing great apes and the forest ecosystems on which they depend to survive

The GRASP coordinator Doug Cress said: “As GRASP moves to the forefront of great ape conservation, it is important that our technology keeps pace with a fast-changing world. This new website not only links the GRASP partners; it also engages and informs the general public in a user-friendly format that will highlight important issues.”

The GRASP website includes links to the GRASP apeAPP mobile phone application, GRASP’s social media platforms, and the GRASP Chinese-language site on Sina Weibo. With these new developments from GRASP, those who are passionate about conserving the great apes will have access to all the information they need to help ensure protection of the great apes.
