The A.P.E.S. Wiki is a platform for site-level information on ape research and conservation. Here you will find information on the population status of apes, threats they face, conservation activities implemented, and research conducted. The information is compiled from scientific publications, reports, and experts with work experience at the sites.

With more than 50 western chimpanzee sites already available, we are currently expanding our efforts to include all 34 great and small ape taxa. Entries are categorized by region, country and site. To access individual countries, first navigate to the corresponding region on the left toolbar. A nationwide overview is included for each ape range country. Summary pages on ape taxa (to date only for western chimpanzee) are also accessible from the left toolbar.

The A.P.E.S. Wiki is a collaborative effort of the Section on Great Apes (SGA) of the IUCN SSC Primate Specialist Group, and it is currently hosted by the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany.
