Ape Action Africa
With wild gorillas and chimpanzees on the brink of extinction, Ape Action Africa is committed to protecting Cameroon’s great apes through direct action, including rescuing orphaned gorillas, chimpanzees and monkeys, and giving them a safe forest sanctuary.
Ape Action Africa is passionate about great ape conservation in Cameroon. Our goals are to address the immediate threats faced by gorillas and chimps in Africa, and to work with communities to develop long-term solutions to ensure their survival in the wild.
We rescue orphaned and injured gorillas and chimpanzees, some only days old, hours from death. Once they are in our care, we work around the clock in Cameroon’s Mefou Primate Park to give them urgent veterinary care and nourishment.
In the protected zone at Mefou, safe from poachers, the animals are cared for by our trained experts, many of them local community members who have joined our team. Eventually, when the young orphans are strong enough, we reintroduce them to groups of their own kind in safe and controlled environments.
We have over 350 primates in our care, including 110 chimps and 20 gorillas, and they all need food, shelter and medicines. It’s full time and full on!
