We are guided by a 20-member IUCN SSC PSG SGA/SSA Task Force Steering Committee. Members advise Task Force policies and activities, and participate in the Task Force's reviews and other outputs. Members are from countries across the apes' ranges, as well as from Europe and North America. To protect the identity of committee members, we do not disclose their names.

For each project that engages with the ARRC task force, we form a panel of about 4-9 members. Panelists are selected by the ARRC Task Force leader and have the choice of remaining anonymous. the ARRC Task Force leader summarizes panel's feedback and is the main point of contact with companies, banks, and consultancy firms and the panel.
