The West African Primate Conservation Action (WAPCA) was an initiative of Heidelberg Zoo, Landau Zoo, Mulhouse Zoo and ZGAP in 2001. Funded annually by a number of Zoological Collections, conservation organizations and private donors our main goal is to effectively preserve primate species in the West-African Upper Guinean Rainforest, which are seriously threatened by extinction. WAPCA operates as an NGO and works in two main ways: community led conservation of the wild primates and their habitat and in captive breeding at the Endangered Primate Breeding Centre, building reserve populations.
