The Great Apes Survival Partnership (GRASP) was launched in 2001 by the UN Environment to help ensure the long-term survival of gorillas, chimpanzees, bonobos and orangutans and their habitat in Africa and Asia. GRASP is a unique alliance of national governments, research institutions, United Nations agencies, conservation organisations, and private sector actors. GRASP aims to leverage the convening power, international access and multidisciplinary resources of its partners to provide a coordinated response to address habitat loss and population declines.
