CHIMBO FOUNDATION

is a Dutch NGO that has been established in 2007 for the protection of the chimpanzee in West Africa, in memory of David Goedmakers.

OUR WORK

Chimbo runs its own programme of community based conservation and acts as a catalyst for policies and actions of others that help to achieve the goal of sustainable, thriving chimpanzee populations in West Africa.

HUNTING OF CHIMPANZEES STOPPED.

With the help of the local population we stopped the hunting of chimpanzees for the pet market. The exceptional farmer that killed a chimpanzee in his field, got heavily penalized.

Chimbo Foundation

Our mission is to guarantee long-term survival of the Western Chimpanzee population through community based conservation in the Boé, Guinea Bissau.
