Tchimpounga serves as an important element of the triangle approach to protecting chimpanzees and other species threatened by poaching and the illegal pet trade by providing a place for law enforcement officers to bring confiscated animals.our conservation work protects the habitats of chimpanzees. Chimpanzees serve as a barometer species: when they are thriving myriad other species flourish. Our signature, community-centered conservation approach, tacare, engages villagers and local stakeholders to identify their needs and priorities and builds durable conservation approaches by solving the issues that cause the threat to critical habitats. In 2017, jgi expanded our tacare approach to six new countries.
