With the increased commercialization of the illegal bushmeat trade across Central and Western Africa, thousands of adult chimpanzees and other endangered wildlife species like elephants and gorillas are killed every year.
 
The illegal, commercial bushmeat trade is not driven by the need to feed local people. Instead, this meat ends up in city markets and expensive restaurants throughout Equatorial Africa. Items such as gorilla hands are considered “delicacies” by wealthy elite both in the range countries and in Europe and the United States.

Celebrate Mother's Day with the Jane Goodall Institute!

The Jane Goodall Institute operates many programs that touch the lives of women in African communities. Efforts like our microcredit loan program and our fuel-efficient stoves project not only help mothers and the communities they live in, they also reduce human dependence on Africa's forests. This in turn allows JGI to better protect key chimpanzee habitat areas located near these communities.
