Ape Conservation in Africa


Wild gorillas and chimpanzees are on the brink of extinction. Habitat loss and poaching threaten these magnificent animals like never before. 


Ape Action Africa is committed to ape conservation in Africa - protecting Cameroon’s great apes through direct action, including rescuing orphaned gorillas, chimpanzees and monkeys, giving them a safe forest sanctuary home where they can live with their own kind.


Thinking of volunteering?


We need volunteers all year round to help us care for our infant chimps and monkeys which includes preparing their food, cleaning their overnight sleeping area and helping with construction. We are particularly short of people this summer because of cancellations so if you are over 21, passionate about primate conservation and would be happy working hard in the hot and humid African rainforest, why not find out more about our volunteer programme?
