The ink on the paris climate agreement is barely dry and yet pressures on tropical forests - including ape habitat - seem to be intensifying rather than diminishing.  The Ape Alliance has brought together a panel of four experts chaired by Ian Redmond OBE to discuss how we as individuals, voters and shoppers can help solve this global problem. 

Ian Redmond has been speaking up for apes and their tropical forest habitat at UN Climate Meetings in Bali, Poznan, Copenhagen and Paris - trying to convince the negotiators that protection of the gardeners of the forest must be part of the global strategy for stabilising the climate and protecting the forests. 

 Andrew Mitchell Founder Director, Global Canopy Programme www.globalcanopy.org & Co-Director, Natural Capital Declaration.  The GCP is a tropical forest think-tank working to demonstrate the scientific, political and business case for safeguarding forests as natural capital that underpins water, food, energy, health and climate security for all. We work through our international networks – of forest communities, science experts, policymakers, and finance and corporate leaders – to gather evidence, spark insight, and catalyse action to halt forest loss and improve human livelihoods dependent on forests.

Osiris Doumbé has created and led the Ellioti Project in the North-West region of Cameroon. This large survey aimed to estimate the distribution of Nigeria-Cameroon chimpanzees (the rarest subspecies of chimpanzees) and the diversity of monkeys in this neglected region. The project highlighted the critical state of primates in the area, but also exposed a rather rich forest with not less than six species of monkeys and a viable population of chimpanzees. The Ellioti Project brought some light on this understudied chimpanzee which is facing an uncertain future due to overhunting and habitat loss, but also climate change.
