Republic of Guinea

JGI began implementing integrated conservation and development activities in Guinea in 2005 with a significant education and awareness-raising campaign focused on chimpanzees and environmental conservation.

Rural populations in Guinea are suffering significant economic hardships, and therefore must have direct incentives to conserve their wildlife and habitat.  Threats like deforestation, poaching, and the pet and illegal, commercial bushmeat trades are made worse by a lack of alternative income generating activities.  In addition, there is a lack of information and awareness about conservation benefits and wildlife laws.
