This project seeks to implement the IUCN Regional Action Plan for the Conservation of Chimpanzees in West Africa targeting three priority Key Biodiversity Areas in Ghana; the Attewa Range, Cape Three Points and Tano-offin Forest reserves. Within the project framework, Presbyterian University College Ghana will contribute to the long-term survival and conservation of endangered primates in Ghana by carrying out ecological surveys, conservation education and awareness campaigns, bio-monitoring and capacity building of Wildlife Division eco-guards. The main project result is the ascertainment of approximate populations and distribution of the five primate species under study to inform the design of conservation programs in Ghana and update information on the four poorly assessed species.

Strategic Direction: 3 Safeguard priority globally threatened species by identifying and addressing major threats and information gaps
