Our whole team is so grateful to U.S. Fish and Wildlife for the grant they just awarded to the CCC for the protection of the Haut Niger National Park!
For many years now, we have worked closely with local authorities to protect Guinea’s first national park. The park is a hotbed of biodiversity and a priority area for the conservation of many species, including wild chimpanzees, whose population is estimated to be about 500. The CCC is located in the heart of the park, and this grant will allow the CCC to continue providing important logistical support to a newly-trained group of eco-guards.
