The National Wildlife Humane Society believes in innovative and creative ways to protect wildlife and wildlife habitat. Please consider joining us in assisting those who seek avenues of primate conservation and educational outreach through direct field efforts in Nigerian African Rainforests.
Center for Education, Research & Conservation of Primates and Nature
CERCOPAN's Mission: To conserve Nigeriaís primates through sustainable rainforest conservation, community partnerships, education, primate rehabilitation and research.
CERCOPANís two education and primate rehabilitation centres are the focal points for the organization. One is located in Calabar (since 1995) and the other in Rhoko near Iko Esai (since 2003). Over 100 primates have been donated or rescued whose parents have been killed for illegal bush meat consumption. Iko Esai is actively conserving approximately 12,000 hectares of community rainforest, including 400 hectares of core protected land within the Akamkpa Local Government Area (LGA) adjacent to Cross River National Park.
CERCOPAN involves communities in managing their forests to protect wildlife and habitat. Iko Esai has agreed to a community-wide ban on hunting of all primates. Community members are currently employed in patrolling habitat areas to protect animals such as monkeys, pangolins and forest elephants from poachers, who unhindered would leave the forests empty. CERCOPAN is also involved in student projects at the research centre at Rhoko Camp, including international research projects. Visit the CERCOPAN website to learn more.
National Wildlife Humane Society is a conservation ally of CERCOPAN. The CERCOPAN Director, Claire Coulson, serves on the NWHS - Wildlife Advisory Council.
