Mali Chimpanzee Habitat & Viability Assessment

The Western chimpanzee, also known as the West African chimpanzee, is a subspecies of the Common Chimpanzee and is listed as Endangered on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. 

The Jane Goodall Institute’s goal is to create a Conservation Action Plan for the Malian chimpanzee range, and to identify and support credible local organizations who can subsequently implement chimpanzee conservation and development activities and scientific research that will ensure the long-term viability of these populations. 

JGI’s proposed work in Mali is part of the Institute’s 30-year goal to protect Africa’s wild chimpanzee populations across the natural chimpanzee range. 

Wildlife & Landscapes

Through collaborative partnerships, we support innovative projects that protect vulnerable wildlife from extinction, while restoring balance to threatened ecosystems and communities. Our work is divided into six main program areas – Wildlands Conservation, Oceans Conservation, Climate Change, Indigenous Rights, Transforming California, and Innovative Solutions.
