(ALL INTERNAL and LIMITED EXTERNAL USES AUTHORIZED) Chimpanzee in the forest at Mahale National Park on Lake Tanganyika in Tanzania. The Nature Conservancy is launching a large-scale effort in the Greater Mahale Ecosystem, with Pathfinder International, Jane Goodall Institute and the Frankfurt Zoological Society to address chimpanzee habitat protection, fisheries management, freshwater protection and community developmentā€”including reproductive health. A key strategy for strengthening chimp populations is to improve management and protection for important stretches of forest, expanding habitat ranges and providing migration corridors.
