Africa Nature Investors Foundation

ANIF’s flagship project is the Gashaka Project which aims to protect the vital population of the critically endangered Nigeria-Cameroon Chimpanzee found in the Gashaka-Gumti National Park, Nigeria.

Gashaka-Gumti National Park (GGNP) contains one of the world’s largest populations of the critically endangered Nigeria-Cameroon chimpanzee.  GGNP is also home to nationally and regionally important populations of African wild dog, pangolin, buffalo, leopard, and a wide range of antelopes and primates. These populations are however threatened by incursions of illegal cattle herders, logging and poaching. In addition, park staff have been critically under-resourced. Rangers have practically no equipment and as a result, patrols barely take place. With decreased ranger patrols and a corresponding increase in human pressure, there has been a reduction in the sightings of chimpanzees (and many other endangered fauna), and it is clear without intervention, the future of the population is in jeopardy.  With the support of Tusk, ANIF Is working to strengthen ranger law enforcement as well as incentivize community protection of the park’s chimpanzee population.
