Launched in 2002, the our African Great Apes Programme works through WWF's field programmes in Central, Eastern, Southern and West Africa.
The programme works with numerous partners
to support projects that help range state governments and their appropriate ministries, wildlife departments and national parks services to:
- improve great ape protection and management
- build capacity within range states
- stop the illegal trade in ape products
- increase people's support for ape conservation.
