August 29, 2013 was a historic day for GAP Project in Brazil and worldwide. One of its founders, the Australian philosopher Peter Singer, had the opportunity to visit the Great Apes Sanctuary of Sorocaba, São Paulo, Brazil, which is affiliated to GAP Project. There he was welcomed by a group of advocates of animal rights and also for two-year-old chimpanzee Suzi , who was born in the sanctuary and threw herself into his arms, as if she knew him for a lifetime.
On the day of the visit, Peter Singer declared himself thrilled to see his work put into practice. Check here a TV programme (parts in English and Portuguese) that covered the historical meeting, and below the covering material of the historic day.
