Threatened species of Pan

Other Names:
Threatened species of Chimpanzee
Nature:
The principal threats to chimpanzees are caused by humans who are increasingly destroying the forest habitat. Historically, capture for medical research had decimated some populations of chimpanzees. Targeting adult females in order to capture their infants has devastated some groups, this is now relatively rare. Chimpanzees are hunted for 'bush meat'.
Incidence:
The USA has banned the importation of chimpanzees for biomedical research purposes and it is to be hoped that other countries will soon follow.
