This species is listed as endangered and threatened by habitat destruction and human population growth, though commercial poaching is its biggest threat.
Bonobos are probably our closest relative and we still know very little about the species. The one Salonga National Park, the one protected area within bonobo range was invaded by heavily armed gangs of poachers.
Bonobos only live in one country, the democratic republic of the congo. There are not many of them left and their numbers are declining everyday because of human threats such as hunting and logging.
Bonobos share more than 98% of our DNA and have a reputation for being peaceful and cooperative in their society and have a highly complex social system system.
To save them their should be stricter laws about poaching and more severe consequences. We should also try to bring more attention to them and what’s happening because at the moment very few people know about it even though they are so closely related to us.
Its really sad that such a nice friendly advanced creature is close to extinction and we aren’t really doing anything about it.
