The Project for Wildlife and Apes Conservation is dedicated to conserving chimpanzees and other great ape populations through research, rescue and partnership with local populations to understand and preserve nature for the benefit of both humans and animals.
P-WAC as Chimpanzee
P-WAC is dedicated to
protecting all animal and plant species, with the “star” species being the chimpanzee, our closest relative. P-WAC provides sanctuary care for chimpanzee victims of deforestation and poaching.
P-WAC as Woman
P-WAC knows that bringing economic opportunity for women strengthens communities. P-WAC provides training, employment and environmental awareness to the local community, particularly women.
When you protect one species of an ecosystem, you preserve a whole environment as well, a chain reaction that helps all species, including humans.
Promoting sustainable development and biodiversity preservation.
