    THE LAST BONOBO: A JOURNEY INTO THE CONGO
    7:00 PM When acclaimed Montreal author Deni Béchard learned of the last living bonobos — matriarchal great apes which are, alongside chimpanzees, our closest relatives — he was astonished. How could we accept the disappearance of this majestic species, along with the rainforest it calls home? Béchard began investigating the problems facing the bonobos — industrial and urban encroachment, aggressive resource extraction by foreign companies, the civil war and genocide which had wreaked havoc on the Congo intermittently for more than a century, the trade in bush-meat — and in the process discovered one small organization, the Bonobo Conservation Institute, which had done more to save the bonobos than many much larger organizations. In BCI Béchard recognized a unique post-colonial model for conservation initiatives which, if replicated, might provide one of the only hopes for making the world a far better and more equitable place. Part polemic, part travelogue, part natural history, "The Last Bonobo: A Journey Into the Congo" offers a moving story of how a few committed people can affect great and lasting change. Free, everyone welcome.
