Research Programs

Because of our close relationship to the great apes in terms of genetics, behavior and physical characteristics, studies on primates are a source of significant information on human evolution. Protecting great apes requires accurate information to determine exactly how many individuals are still living in the wild. In the face of threats to them, which contribute to their extinction, information on their status and location must be shared.

P-WAC hopes to develop a research station to study the populations of chimpanzees and wild monkeys discovered at the P-WAC site. This knowledge will allow P-WAC to better plan and carry out the reintroduction phase of chimpanzees. Students interested in helping us are invited to submit their non-invasive area of study. The disciplines that will be considered are primatology, veterinary medicine, botany, ethology, genetics.
