Rediscovered less than 20 years ago, the Nigeria-

Cameroon chimpanzee is the rarest and least

studied subspecies of chimpanzees. Nowadays, the

forests and savannah woodlands of the heart of the

Gulf of Guinea probably contain less than 6,000

individuals of this great ape. A victim of overhunting

and deforestation, the future of this primate is

unsure.

Since the elevation of the Nigeria-Cameroon

chimpanzee as a distinct subspecies, several

primatologists have grown interested in studying the

ecology and the complexity of the conservation of

this great ape in a sub-region with one of the

highest human densities in Africa. Nevertheless,

some populations have remained neglected. In this

talk, I will present the first research on the

chimpanzees of the mountainous North-West region

of Cameroon.
