Recycle your old phones to help chimpanzees in the wild!

When you recycle your mobile phones at Adelaide Zoo or Monarto Safari Park, the funds generated through recycling supports on-ground work with Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary and the Jane Goodall Institute Australia.

Tacugama have over 80 Chimpanzees in their Rehabilitation Centre and run community outreach, research and alternative livelihoods programs. The Jane Goodall Institute Australia are supporting education, research and community programs in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

If you would like to incorporate phone recycling as part of a school visit, mention it to our Education team when making your booking.
