The purpose of this project is to change the attitudes and behaviors of key target audiences and reduce threats to chimpanzees from poaching and habitat destruction within Nyungwe National Park, Rwanda, and Kibira National Park, Burundi. This will be done by producing a series of radio serial dramas. (2014-2015)

Former Project Titles:

  • My Chimpanzee-My Community (2011-2012)
    • This project will complement outreach activities conducted by the Wildlife Conservation Society and Rwandan park authorities to positively change community knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors related to chimpanzees. The grantee will conduct a radio theatre campaign designed to strengthen engagement in protecting Nyungwe National Park.

Note: It seems there was a 2-year gap of implementation between 2012 and 2014.
