Rescue Information

 These two maps show our experience of how and where chimpanzees are smuggled from the wild.

From their limited distribution, we know they are exported from Nigeria and Equatorial Guinea illegally.

The baby chimpanzees are then smuggled by boat or plane, across the world. They are mainly used for the illegal pet trade and the entertainment business.

This barbaric trade poses a serious threat to the survival of the wild chimpanzee. 

By clicking on the flags, you can see some examples of our investigations and rescues, including our work in Asia.
