  • History:

    Also referred to as chimps, chimpanzees are often studied due to their close evolutionary relationship to humans. Unfortunately, chimps are considered endangered due to a loss of their natural habitat from the growth and incursion of human populations. While they can still be found in Angola, Cameroon, and Nigeria, they are no longer endemic to Gambia, Togo, Benin, and Burkina Faso.

    Present Status Chimpanzees are listed as Endangered, mainly due to habitat loss and destruction, poaching, and disease. There are roughly 172,700 to 299,700 left in the wild, although their numbers are expected to continue decreasing. Logging, infectious diseases, poaching for meat, medicinal use, and the pet trade are the biggest threats to this species. Chimpanzees are legally protected in most of the countries throughout their range.
