Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Meet Lucy. She's a bonobo and she's a lot like you! In this story, you'll learn about Lucy and her family and see amazing photographs that will make you laugh out loud. What is a bonobo? Bonobos are our closest great ape relatives who live in a uniquely peaceful and matriarchal society. Tragically, scientists predict bonobo extinction within 10 years unless humans protect them and their habitat, the rainforests of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) in Africa. People can help though! All profits from I'm Lucy go to the Bonobo Conservation Initiative and the Roots and Shoots program - organizations working to save the bonobos and the Earth.
