Help save chimps: Pull the plug on electronics and chargers.

Our everyday activities affect global climate change. In Rwanda’s Nyungwe National Park, home to Africa’s richest community of mountain primates, including chimpanzees and mangabeys, climate change has resulted in more and longer droughts. As a result, more than 10 percent of the rainforest has been lost to fires. To help save Nyungwe, pull the plug on electronics and chargers when they are not in use. In the average American home, 40 percent of all electricity is used to power appliances while they are turned off.
