One of the last strongholds for Western chimpanzees

tudy provide crucial information for site prioritization and selection in this ongoing process," says lead author Clement Tweh of the Wild Chimpanzee Foundation in Liberia. "For example, the shape and location of some of the proposed protected areas might have to be re-considered. Also, it will be necessary to rapidly implement full protection status for proposed conservation priority areas, as future mining and forestry projects are encroaching fast."

Since the ban on timber exports was repealed in 2006, more than 20,000 square kilometres of forest have already been assigned as forestry concessions and awarded to international and local investors. Additionally, since 2010, logging companies were issued so-called Private Use Permits, which were subject to virtually no sustainability requirements and accounted for almost half of Liberia's remaining primary forest. Fortunately, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf recently withdrew almost half of these allocations, thus saving tens of thousands of square kilometres of primary tropical rainforest. "Our survey makes it clear that this action has also saved a large number of West African chimpanzees," says co-author Menladi Lormie, Max Planck researcher and FDA ecologist, of the President's decision.

This survey showed that in areas where primary rainforest was still abundant, hunting was the anthropogenic threat most frequently encountered, followed by logging, mining and non-timber forest product extraction. "This combination of large-scale habitat destruction and high hunting rates may seriously jeopardize the long-term survival of Liberia's wildlife populations", says Dr. Annika Hillers, co-author of the article and conservation scientist for The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds in the Gola Forests, Sierra Leone and Liberia. "With this study, we provide an accurate and comprehensive data-based platform for local wildlife protection authorities, policy-makers and international conservation agenci
