The ERM Foundation is working in partnership with Project Primates France to assess potential sites to release rehabilitated orphaned chimpanzees back into the wild. We have provided funding and pro bono professional support to assess the environmental conditions and potential human-animal conflict in pre-selected sites. In addition, we supported the delivery of workshops with local communities on the topic of habitat protection and anti-poaching awareness to encourage co-habitation in advance of the release of the chimpanzees back into the wild.
