(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 development—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.
