Our vision is to save the last populations of the endangered Nigeria-Cameroon chimpanzee in the North West region of Cameroon. There are about 6000 of them remaining in nature. Unfortunately they are hunted for bush meat, and their body parts are sold for traditional medicine in this region. Our aims are to estimate their current numbers, investigate what they eat and to make protection possible for the remaining individuals in the study area.
