We are convinced that before too long most ape populations surviving in Africa will be those whose protection involves the habituation of wild apes to close approach by humans. Consequently, our efforts are focused on finding new strategies for making habituated ape programs both self-funding and biologically sustainable. We work in two overlapping areas. Our projects tend to emphasize new technology solutions and new “Business Models” for funding and managing conservation efforts.
