Neighbor Ape

Our organization strives to conserve the habitat of wild chimpanzees in southeastern Senegal, to protect the chimpanzees themselves, and to provide for the wellbeing of the Senegalese people who have traditionally lived in the area alongside these chimpanzees. Our goal is to promote sustainable conservation practices that take into account the needs of local humans, in part by providing assistance to the people of the various local villages in the region.

Our Neighbor Ape organization rescued infant Fongoli chimpanzee Toto after his mother died of snakebite & no other group members found him. Toto was 2 months old at the time & wouldn't have been able to survive on his own. He must be cared for until he is at least 2 years of age, & we will then find the best option for him. project reportread updates from the field
Give 5 Villages in Senegal Access to Healthcare

Access to healthcare in rural Senegal is difficult if not impossible for most. Our project provides seed money to a Senegalese organization setting up a lending program so villagers can borrow money in medical emergencies. Health insurance here is nonexistent, and people in rural areas have restricted access to cash, especially in amounts needed in medical emergencies. "OBRAR", the organization initiating this program, represents 5 villages where people of the minority Beudik group reside. project reportread updates from the field
