Challenge

Only about 150,000 chimpanzees remain in the wild today compared to 2 million in the 1900s. The main threats to their survival are greater demand for agricultural and living spaces for people, logging, bush meat poaching and capture of young chimpanzees for the pet trade. We work to intercept and report this activity and provide vetinary care and a safe home for chimpanzees that are caught up in these activities and can do this by working with local communities to support their needs too.

Solution

Many chimps are very distressed when they first arrive at Tchimpounga. Our local staff care for the chimps and give them food, shelter and medical attention. We also help the chimps to become acquainted with other chimpanzees again.

Long-Term Impact

The Sanctuary is currently housing 140 orphaned chimpanzees. Over the last two years we have had 40 chimpanzees brought to us, and in the past year alone, we have seen more than a 20 percent increase in the number of chimpanzees brought to us.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
