Our projects tackle the key issues threatening wildlife of the Gambia

Our mission

Project Wild Gambia manages a plethora of field projects that allows us and other zoologists, wildlife biologists and conservationists to address critical issues diminishing local wildlife populations. We have rediscovered several species, increased the known population of an endangered primate by 24% and contributed to numerous significant scientific publishings over the years. 

We are working behind the scenes on additional inspiring projects, all directly benefitting the wildlife and local communities of The Gambia. If you're interested in being involved, join one of our open-group research expeditions or if you're academic staff, arrange a fieldcourse for your students.
