Reduce immediate threats to key species at three Cross River gorilla sites in Nigeria by enabling rangers to sustain longer and more frequent patrols and generate data for strategic decisions on future patrols. Support an outreach program to change local attitudes and practices for the conservation of watersheds and the sustainability of non-timber forest products important for local women.
