Wild Chimpanzee Foundation

Law enforcement

Together with the national authorities such as the Forestry Development Authority (FDA) in Liberia, Ministères des Eaux et Forêt in Guinée and Côte d’Ivoire, Office Ivoirien des Parcs et Réserves (OIPR), Office Guinéen des Parcs et Réserves (OGUIPAR) and Société de Développement des Forêts (SODEFOR), the Wild Chimpanzee Foundation is supporting law enforcement activities in these three countries. We support by reporting monitoring results to the authorities, with detailed results of illegal human activities and animal densities, so that law enforcement patrols can be most efficient. Furthermore, WCF supports with a community eco-guards patrol program for example in Grebo National Forest, Liberia and an eco-guard team in Taï National Park, Côte d’Ivoire.
