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.
Conserving Senegal's Chimpanzees through Education
In order to conserve the small population of savanna chimpanzees in Senegal, West Africa our organization Neighbor Ape works to educate people living alongside them and to aid in their welfare as well. Our project includes educational workshops at villages sharing land with chimpanzees, as well as providing scholarships for village children so that they can attend mission schools in regional towns or nursing school in the capitol city of Dakar. We especially try to assist young women. project reportread updates from the field
Care for orphan chimpanzee in Senegal
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
