Ape TAG Conservation Initiative Awardees
2014-2016
 
The Ape TAG is proud to announce the second set of recipients of the Conservation Initiative. These eight projects were selected from the 37 submitted by an international panel of ape experts. They represent a range of conservation activities, from basic monitoring and protection to law enforcement to conservation education. In addition, they all include strong capacity building components, which will further enhance the ability of range states to conserve apes and other wildlife.
