CHIMPANZEE REHABILITATION PROJECT
A sanctuary for more than 100 chimpanzees on islands in the River Gambia.
The Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Project (CRP) was established on the islands in the Gambia River in 1979 for the care and reintroduction of orphaned and unwanted chimpanzees. Wild chimpanzees disappeared from the Gambia in the early 1900’s, but there are now more than 100 chimpanzees living in four separate social groups on three islands. Visit Website.
