Programmes - CERCOPAN's Holistic Approach to Conservation

CERCOPAN takes a long-term, holistic approach to the conservation of rainforests and primates in Cross River state, which is reflected by our 5 different but highly integrated programmes.  One-off programmes centred singly on Community Development, Education, Women or Youth Empowerment, Research, Conservation, Forest protection, etc. frequently fail. Our strategy to cover Forest Conservation, Environmental Education and Research, Primate Rehabilitation and Community Based Conservation, working collaboratively with each of the interest-groups, and integrated around the signature theme of primates is the cornerstone of our success.
