Floods have destroyed one of our field camps, we need your help to restore it and keep working with Africans to protect Comoé chimpanzees!
We have been hiring natives for the last four years to work in conservation of chimpanzees in Comoé National Park, Ivory Coast. Every year, the work in the rainy season is hard, but this year it has been especially terrible and floods bigger than anybody can remember in the area have passed through our field camps, destroying completely one of them.
The photos are from last year's floods, since this year they were so bad that I made all the workers come out of the park to avoid risks. When they came back, they found that several tents were lost or damaged and most of the camp equipment in our northern camp was taken away by the water of the river.
We want to keep working to involve Africans in conservation and to protect the critically endangered chimpanzees of Comoé. If you decide to help us, your money will go to pay the tents where our native assistants sleep, the pots where they cook, buckets, matts, tarps, cuttlery and two gps that were damaged. Thanks a lot for your support!
