Nigeria Conservation Programme

In Nigeria’s Gashaka Gumti National Park Chester Zoo provides core support for the Gashaka Primate Project.

This project promotes research into the fauna and flora of Gashaka and in doing so is conserving the amazing biodiversity of the region.

We have supported this project continuously since 1999.

Additionally, our support has enabled the demarcation of the borders of GGNP. This project provided markers to signify the edge of the park, helping to control issues such as encroachment and illegal harvesting in the park.

We also supports the important Nigerian Montane Forest Project, carrying out important botanical research at a neighbouring site, Ngel Nyaki Forest Reserve.
