Wild chimpanzees face a high risk of extinction in the near future due to threats such as poaching and hunting, habitat loss and degradation as a consequence of human encroachment for industrial or agricultural expansion, and the spread of disease.
By funding the projects of like-minded conservation organisations, Born Free is helping to safeguard chimp populations in east and west Africa with initiatives that aim to reduce human-wildlife conflict.
We have pledged our support to several initiatives which provide a co-ordinated approach to wild chimp conservation.
Born Free supports initiatives in Uganda in East Africa, and Cameroon in Central Africa, which seek to monitor chimp populations, safeguard their habitats, and help communities and wildlife to live peacefully side-by-side.
With the benefit of your valued support, we can continue our efforts to ensure the survival of wild chimp populations in East and West Africa.
Conservation efforts are urgently needed to ensure the long term survival of wild chimpanzees – please support us.

Sara was confiscated from a wildlife trader in South Sudan, who tried to sell her as a pet. Your adoption will help provide the food and care she needs.
