Description
The African Conservation Foundation works to preserve Africa’s magnificent wildlife by supporting, linking and conducting conservation projects throughout the continent.

The Cross River gorilla could become extinct within 10 years, unless we act now. Volunteering on this conservation project in Cameroon will take you to work on the frontline of conservation, taking part in surveys of the montane rainforests - some of which have never been surveyed before - and in community education and awareness-raising activities.

South West Cameroon harbours two of the most threatened African great apes: the critically endangered Cross River gorilla - the rarest of the gorilla sub-species with 250-300 individuals left in the wild - and the Nigeria-Cameroon chimpanzee - also the most endangered chimpanzee subspecies in Africa. They are both keystone species in the montane forest ecosystems of the border region of Nigeria and Cameroon.

Volunteer in the Highland Rainforests of South West Cameroon.
Join a 2 or 4-week expedition that gives volunteers the chance to work as part of an award-winning team, protecting Africa's most endangered great apes through direct action.
