CHIMPANZEE CONSERVATION CENTER
Located in the Republic of Guinea, the Chimpanzee Conservation Center (CCC) is a sanctuary created in 1997 for victims of the rampant pet trade. Once abundant in Guinea, wild chimpanzee population continue to decline and are now on the brink of extinction.
The Chimpanzee Conservation Center is located in the heart of the National Park of Upper Niger within the Faranah Prefecture.
Once confiscated by the Guinean authorities, orphaned chimpanzees are welcomed by the CCC, where they are offered the best possible living conditions and are rehabilitated for potential realease into the wild.
Rescue chimpanzee follow a long rehabilitation process at the CCC in order to regain their freedom and natural habitat.
The CCC educates local communities on the threats facing remaining chimpanzee populations and the importance of protecting this species and its habitat.
The Center actively participates in local community development around the National Park of Upper Niger.
