Promoting the long-term conservation of gorillas and chimpanzees in key landscapes in eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo and the Nigeria-Cameroon transboundary region
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s (Service) mission is to work with others to conserve, protect and enhance fish, wildlife, plants, and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people. The International Affairs Program delivers on this mission through its financial and technical assistance programs by supporting strategic projects that deliver measurable conservation results for priority species and their habitats around the world.
The goal of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s African Great Ape Program is to ensure the long-term conservation of African great ape populations in the wild. We do this through financial and technical assistance to support effectively implemented site-based ape conservation projects, strengthen the evidence base for ape conservation, and further develop ape conservation capacity in African ape range states.
Deadline: Oct. 4, 2023
