The ATO association has four main missions:
- Assist government authorities to collect confiscated primates (trafficking, detentions by individuals, etc.)
- Allow rehabilitation of primates aimed at strengthening wild populations
- Mobilize, inform, train, encourage, promote and participate in local economic development
- Limit conflicts between humans and animals.
ATO specifically aims to conserve, manage and strengthen the populations of various species of primates living in Benin. By setting up the first conservation and rehabilitation center for primates, the project aims first to save orphans whose chances of survival in villages are extremely low, and therefore supports the local authorities by recovering the confiscated animals. But the impact does not stop there: the reintroduction aimed at strengthening wild populations and their habitat as well as the education of local populations and support for local development are inseparable and complementary tools of a conservation project.
