We are grateful to numerous funding bodies, institutions, and individuals that over the years have supported our work and helped us study and protect wild chimpanzees. Most notably is the UCSD/Salk Center for Academic Research and Training in Anthropogeny (CARTA), with whom we have worked annually since 2011.

Specific research projects at the site have been supported by the following organizations, to which we are very grateful: ARCUS Foundation

Carnegie Trust for Universities of Scotland

Flora and Fauna International

Harold Hyam Wingate Foundation

International Primatological Society

Jane Goodall Institute

L.S.B. Leakey Foundation

National Geographic

National Science Foundation

Royal Anthropological Institute

The Nature Conservancy/Tuungane Project

UCSD Committee on Research

United States Fish and Wildlife Great Apes Fund

Wenner Gren Foundation

Without the support of these extremely generous groups, we would not be able to continue our work. Asanteni sana!

Center for Academic Research and Teaching in Anthropology

The Center for Academic Research and Teaching in Anthropogeny (CARTA) based at UCSD has provided critical financial support that has allowed for the continued maintenance and growth of our work. As part of the graduate program in Anthropogeny at UCSD, some CARTA students and staff also participate in a field course that addresses the origins and adaptations of our species.
