CHIMPANZEES are in danger!
There are around 18,000–65,000 critically endangered western chimpanzees left in the wild!
There are three major threats facing wild chimpanzees:
- The loss of their forest habitat - humans are burning, logging and mining in these forests.
- Their vulnerability to human diseases.
- They are hunted for their meat and infants are taken from their mothers to sell in the pet trade.
