The Green Corridor project is a plantation activity for mitigating fragmented habitat of wild chimpanzees. On July 12th, 19 people from IREB/KUPRI had planted 100 saplings of Uapaca heudelotii, a forest plant species, to promote individual interchange between the Bossou chimpanzee community and the neighboring Nimba populations.
