Endangered Species

CSC_1133P-WAC’s primary mission is to protect species in danger of extinction

One of the primary aims of P-WAC is to preserve local biodiversity in the Congo Central Province and more specifically to help endangered species, such as primates, who are victims of human activities (poaching, deforestation).

P-WAC set up a rehabilitation center for wildlife (especially apes) seized by the government. At this stage, the P-WAC team rescues newcomers to prepare them to be subsequently reintroduced into the wild. Indeed, P-WAC does not want to keep rescued animals in captivity, which would cost a lot of money over time and, more importantly, does not match the values of the P-WAC team: protected wildlife in its natural habitat! Thus, once treated and judged ready to be released, P-WAC reintroduces its individuals in the forests of the Congo Basin.

1. Rehabilitation Center

      • Receive animals confiscated or seized by the government
      • Care for the animals
      • Rehabilitate them for return to the wild into their natural habitat

2. Creation of a reintroduction sanctuary

      • Reintroduction site, to return rehabilitated animals to freedom
