Our Gashaka Biodiversity Project works to protect not only a beautiful wilderness and all of the ecological functions it plays, but biodiverse habitats that hold a wealth of threatened species – including the Nigeria-Cameroon chimpanzee.

This species is registered as endangered by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature’s (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species.

In the below video Dr Umar Buba, project manager of our Gashaka Biodiversity Project, tells us more about these animals and why they are under threat of extinction.
