Growing Conservation Impact in Tanzania

Protecting chimpanzees and their habitats is the heart of JGI’s mission. For several decades, JGI has invested in partnerships with local communities and governments to address conservation threats head-on with innovative and holistic solutions driven by the latest science and technology. In Western Tanzania, from improving access to sustainable livelihoods, implementing collaborative land-use planning, supporting capacity around natural resource management and expanding environment education, we’re achieving positive outcomes so that people, chimpanzees and their ecosystems can all thrive. With the generous support of concerned individuals around the world, we’re delivering hope through conservation action.
