Plumptre AJ, Williamson EA, Rose R, Nangendo G, Didier K, Hart J & Mulindahabi F (2010) Eastern Chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes schweinfurthii): Status Survey and Conservation Action Plan 2010-2020. Gland, Switzerland: IUCN. http://www.iucn.org/knowledge/publications_doc/publications/?5481/East-African-chimpanzee-Pan-troglodytes-schweinfurthii--status-survey-and-conservation-action-plan-2010-2020
The eastern chimpanzee is classified as “endangered” and of global conservation concern. This publication offers a 10-year plan which, if fully implemented, will go a long way to ensuring the maintenance of viable populations of the eastern chimpanzee across much of its existing range. Chimpanzees are excellent flagship and umbrella species for conservation; protecting their populations and habitat protects innumerable other species.
