Washington Magazine recently featured the work of Crickette Sanz, assistant professor of anthropology, and David Morgan, conservation and research fellow at the Lincoln Park Zoo and Wildlife Conservation Society, who are co-directors of the Goualougo Triangle Ape Project.
Their organization’s mission is to promote the long-term conservation of Congo’s great apes and ape habitat.
Their research has spurred the Republic of Congo to enlarge its Nouabalé-Ndoki National Park boundaries to include the Goualougo Triangle. The Goualougo Triangle is a remote, pristine forest that is home to at least 14 communities of “naïve” chimpanzees with little exposure to humans.
