Chimpanzees, Bonobos, Gorillas and Orang-utans are now on the ‘Red List’ of endangered species. Although protected by national law in virtually every country that they inhabit, lack of enforcement means that poaching, illegal logging and mining are all taking an appalling toll on ape populations. No Hiding Place – 2, examines the prospects for success of the UNEP initiative – the Great Apes Survival Project – as it seeks to stiffen national resolve and mobilise international support. Earth Report follows Ape Alliance director Ian Redmond and Ugandan conservationist Eve Abe as they visit Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo – and in consultation with relevant ‘stakeholders’, develop a survival plan tailored to the needs of the country and species in question.
