Regional action plan for the conservation of chimpanzees in West Africa

Complete Title: 
Regional action plan for the conservation of chimpanzees in West Africa
IUCN Publication
Abstract: 

The following action plan details a strategy for protecting 80% of the surviving chimpanzees in West Africa at a cost of US$9 million. The plan resulted from a recent workshop in Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire, where an international group of 72 biologists, protected areas managers, government officials, and other experts met to discuss priority actions for protecting chimpanzees in West Africa. A key feature of this plan is the protection of chimpanzee habitat, an approach that would also benefit numerous other threatened species in a region that ranks among the world's most biologically diverse.
