PROJECT STAGE ONE:
Exploration and Feasibility Studies
Process: Ideally, this is the stage at which we prefer to become involved with any project. Our hope is that by engaging at this earliest stage, we can avoid negative impacts on apes and their habitat from the outset. We can advise on high priority areas for ape populations to avoid.
Product: We will provide an official IUCN SSC PSG ARRC Task Force Statement about what we generally advise about the project. This statement to eventually be made available in the database on our website.
