Abstract

The present chapter aims to report on a reforestation program known as the “Green Corridor Project,” which was initiated in January 1997. This project aims to connect the chimpanzee habitat of Bossou to that of the Nimba Mountains. This project began with a pilot study known as the “Petit Jardin Botanique.” This study aimed to evaluate the plant species that would best thrive in a savanna environment. Over the years, the Green Corridor Project has involved the creation of tree nurseries, the introduction of hexatubes to protect the young trees, and the planting of cuttings of Spondias cythera trees. The Green Corridor Project has promoted environmental awareness in the locality.
