How can we protect chimpanzees?
Protecting chimpanzees from this crisis involves taking a multipronged approach to conservation.
A great deal of chimpanzee loss stems from a lack of protected habitat, little to no law enforcement when chimpanzees are hunted, poor understanding of the situation within communities and industry, and a lack of collaborative cross-border action involving local authorities and governments.
To protect the last remaining groups of chimpanzees, we must work ambitiously to address all these issues.
And we are.
What is Fauna & Flora doing to protect chimpanzees?
We are protecting chimpanzees in many parts of their range from Liberia and Guinea to the Democratic Republic of Congo, South Sudan and Uganda.
Our action plans are bringing together local communities, governments and law enforcement bodies to tackle chimpanzee decline head on, with bold and long-lasting conservation measures. Examples of our work include establishing protected habitats, bolstering ranger and law enforcement capacity, and forming wildlife corridors vital for reuniting fragmented chimp populations.
This ambitious work is highly demanding and heavy on our resources, so we need your support.
Your donation will enable us to tackle the surge in chimpanzee threats by expanding both the range and focus of our work.
