Logging in Chimpanzee Habitat

Chimpanzee habitat is under increasing pressure from the logging industry. New roads cut deep into forests populated with endangered chimpanzees. Without careful management, these roads can attract poachers targeting primates and migrant farmers clearing forests to plant crops. Mapping roads in chimpanzee habitats helps us assess the scale and rate of habitat fragmentation and identify potential illegal logging operations.
