A Decade Strong

February 5, 2009 6:30 PM

It is this month that GTAP celebrates its 10th anniversary. The success of this project has been due to the tireless efforts of the entire team. Jean Robert Onononga has conducted hundreds of kilometers of transect surveys to document ape abundance and distribution throughout this region. Crepin Eyana has continued this tradition in the adjacent logging concession, and has documented many important aspects of the effects of logging on wild chimpanzees and gorillas. Sydney Ndolo is the GTAP’s staff botanist, and has already contributed much to our ecological monitoring of the Ndoki’s forests. Our research and conservation would be simply not be possible without the dedication of the forest guides. Their love of the forests is also a great inspiration. Also, we have not forgotten our dear friend and colleague Paul Zingouata. He remains a legend in these forests and is missed by all.
