GRASP Regional Meeting Set to Promote Central African Cooperation

Law enforcement, illegal trade, trans-boundary collaboration and other issues of importance in the Congo Basin will be on the agenda when the Great Apes Survival Partnership (GRASP) Regional Meeting – Central Africa begins May 25 in Brazzaville, Congo.

The two-day meeting is designed to promote cooperation and collaboration among the seven nations that comprise GRASP’s central African partners, along with conservation organizations, research institutions and other agencies working in the region.

Congo, Cameroon, Equatorial Guinea, Angola, the Central African Republic, Gabon, and the Democratic Republic of Congo collectively host the majority of Africa’s great apes.

“Central Africa is blessed with large populations of gorillas, chimpanzees and bonobos, but it also faces major obstacles in protecting them,” said GRASP coordinator Doug Cress. “Political strife, poaching, habitat loss and disease threats are just a few of the concerns, and it is extremely important that the GRASP partners work closely together if we are to ensure the long-term survival of great apes.”

The Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival, the United Nations’ Great Apes Survival Partnership (GRASP) and the Arcus Foundation will join to convene the Great Apes Summit, an international symposium that will tackle major issues that threaten the long-term survival of gorillas, chimpanzees, bonobos and orangutans in Africa and Asia.

The Great Apes Summit will be held Sept. 21- 24, and will complement the Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival’s biennial media industry conference through a high-profile series of public events and private conference sessions.

Great ape advocates, public policy experts, media professionals, range state leaders and program funders will take part in topic-driven meetings to highlight areas of concern, and propose solutions to ensure a future for these endangered species. Emphasis will be placed upon agreements or activities that will have significant impact.

Sessions will be grouped under three themes: 1.) Consumption, 2.) Ethics, and 3.) Going Forward.
