Sanaga Yong Chimpanzee Rescue Center

The Sanaga-Yong Chimpanzee Rescue Center is currently home to 72 chimpanzees. It employs 25 Cameroonians from local villages who serve as chimpanzee caregivers, round-the-clock security guards and groundskeepers. The grounds include cabins for volunteers, a combination kitchen/office building, a vet clinic, an education center, a shelter for staff meetings and meals, chimpanzee enclosures and cages, and a small garden where some of the food for the chimpanzees is grown. Children of Conservation is excited to have added Sanaga-Yong to its scholarship program in 2015.
