P-WAC is a French association recognized as an environmental NGO in the Democratic Republic of Congo since 2015. Its objective is to participate in the global efforts to preserve great apes by providing them with support, care and scientific monitoring. More specifically, P-WAC collects primates (including chimpanzees and a few small monkeys - cercopithecus) victims of humans and offers them a chance to return to the wild, in their protected environment.
P-WAC has a "win-win" vision where the conservation of a species benefits both people and nature. The very essence of P-WAC is to enable local populations to make a living by conserving great apes, and no longer by hunting them and selling their meat.
P-WAC also acts in Europe, P-WAC by popularizing primatology. She explains to a wide audience the plight of the great apes, bringing pictures of deforestation, and explains the reasons for the trafficking of wild animals in simple words.
The Le PAL Nature Foundation helps P-WAC to finance part of various future works. This association has notably planned to rehabilitate the cercopithecus enclosure, the quarantine house and the reinforcement of the chimpanzee enclosure. P-WAC regularly participates in Foundation Day via a stand to inform visitors.
Amandine Renaud, founder of the P-WAC association, is a primatologist and doctoral student in anthropology of nature, who devotes her life to the conservation of primates.
The Foundation supports and supports financially, technically and humanly projects which, in France and abroad, offer lasting solutions to respond to the threats facing biodiversity, and in particular endangered wildlife species and their habitat.All projects
