Primate Rescue Center

Comic Strip Series Helps Primates

April Truitt February 10, 2011

UVic student and former Camosun student Troy Wilson is fighting to raise money for a primate sanctuary in the United States, and he’s going about it with an unusual approach.

Wilson is the editor of Panels for Primates, which is an online anthology of comic strips about primates. The project started in October and one new comic strip will be installed every Wednesday until sometime in April. At the end of each installment is a page encouraging people to donate to the Primate Rescue Centre in Nicholasville, Kentucky.

Wilson admits the fundraising initiative is “an odd endeavour” and questions whether many people will donate money online for something they can view for free. But he says he hopes comic lovers will come around, as his own appreciation for comics inspired him to take on the project from the start.
