Action for Apes Challenge is in Full Swing

Our 2015 Action for Apes Cell Phone Recycling Challenge is off to a great start! The Action for Apes Challenge is a community-wide cell phone recycling contest to help save gorillas in the wild.

So far we have 21 Houston area groups who have signed up for the 2015 Challenge! These groups are from all around the Houston area and include schools, scout troops, companies, living communities and families, all working to make a difference in the lives of gorillas.

Collectively, these groups hope to recycle nearly 5,000 cell phones and other handheld electronic devices! That is 5,000 actions taken by the Houston Community to save animals in the wild.
