Please Help Chimpanzees
Please help save chimpanzees. Their numbers are plummeting, unless we act now, we risk losing them forever.
FFI is working to save chimpanzees and their habitat in many countries across their range in West, Central and East Africa. In partnership with governments and local communities we are helping to develop action plans, improve law enforcement, protect and restore forest habitat, and ensure that rangers are well trained and adequately equipped.
In western Uganda, FFI is supporting communities in their restoration of vital forest corridors between some of the country’s remaining chimpanzee strongholds in the Albertine Rift area. Households are already actively engaged in monitoring chimp movements and numbers via the project’s mobile phone network, and FFI is working with farmers to devise ways of connecting other remnant patches of forest within this subsistence agriculture landscape.
In West Africa, FFI is working to improve governance, management and biodiversity protection in the Upper Guinean Forest landscape. This transboundary initiative incorporates Guinea’s Ziama Man and Biosphere Reserve and Liberia’s Wonegizi proposed protected area, which harbour significant numbers of the western chimpanzee. FFI is supporting a regional Chimpanzee Action Plan to safeguard this critically endangered subspecies.
Chimpanzees are also among the many species benefiting from our work in the Democratic Republic of Congo and other countries beset by civil conflict. For example, regular patrols are helping to deter poachers at an FFI project site in South Sudan where camera traps have revealed the presence of eastern chimpanzees.
Please – donate today and help fund their protection. Don’t let us lose these chimpanzees. They desperately need your help.
Fauna & Flora International (FFI) is the world’s oldest conservation charity. Over the last 100 years, we have literally saved species from extinction and even – with the help of our vice-president, Sir David Attenborough – helped bring mountain gorillas back from the brink. We work to protect plants and animals around the globe, and spend 94% of our income on charitable activities.
If you value the natural world – if you think it should be protected for its own sake as well as humanity’s – then please support Fauna & Flora International.
