Hub African Forest

African Forest

A thick forest canopy towers above mountaintops and river valleys in the moist, tropical Congo Basin forest ecosystem, a biodiversity hotspot that is a site of global importance to our planet’s overall health. We collaborate with local communities to conserve biodiversity in Cameroon’s Ebo Forest—one of the last remaining intact forests in all of Central Africa, and an important part of Cameroon’s rich natural heritage.

The Ebo Forest is essential habitat for an array of wildlife, including some of the most endangered primates on Earth: a unique population of lowland gorillas, tool-using chimpanzees, and the Preuss’s red colobus monkey. Our conservation team is dedicated to enhancing capacity to enable a sustainable, long-term future for the unique wildlife of Ebo Forest, as well as the communities around it that depend on it.
