6. Chimp Cap

Our Central Africa Program blazed a trail of multinational coordination and published the first comprehensive Conservation Action Plan (CAP) for the most rare type of chimpanzee, Pan troglodytes ellioti. Found only in the Nigeria-Cameroon region, this ape’s population of 3,500 will have protection, thanks to three years of workshops in Nigeria and Cameroon involving government officials, national and international conservation groups, academic researchers, and the environment and wildlife ministers of both countries. This historical consensus between two large African nations sets an inspiring example of unity in support of wildlife conservation.
