Liberia Chimpanzee Rescue and Protection’s (LCRP) mission is to provide lifelong care for chimpanzees who are victims of Liberia’s bushmeat and live pet trades and help drive dynamic strategies in the fight against chimpanzee trafficking and the conservation of wild populations.
We are dedicated to providing the highest standards of care and welfare for chimpanzees who are victims of the bushmeat and pet trades and working with the local and international community to provide social, economic and environmental benefits for all. We also continue our commitment to partnering with all stakeholders in safeguarding the futures of the chimpanzees abandoned by the New York Blood Center.
LCRP is a Liberian NGO with diverse and collaborative partnerships designed to care for current chimpanzee residents and to development long term strategies to combat the illegal trade of chimpanzees and other protected wildlife; rescue additional captive chimpanzees: and participate in comprehensive conservation education, awareness and protection efforts.
LCRP is excited to be working with animal welfare, health, and research organizations in Liberia to improve the overall health and well being of animals, both domestic and wild, and the community. Some of LCRP’s initiatives include World Rabies Day, emerging disease research, vaccination and spay/neuter programs, and participation in the development of wildlife regulations and Conservation Action Planning.
