The objectives of Chimbo are:
- the conservation and where necessary restoration of the chimpanzee population in West Africa and the natural environment in which they live;
- to undertake all sorts of actions that are supportive to the above goal. .
Our mission is to establish the Boé Sector in Guinea Bissau as a sustainable community based protected area that is financially self-supporting ten years after the date that it has obtained its legal protected area status. The Boé case will serve as an example for other areas in West Africa with chimpanzee populations.
In the south of the Boé sector bauxite mining is in development. We aim for responsible mining that takes care the interests of the local population and the local biodiversity.
