It is with profound sorrow that the Board of the Wild Chimpanzee Foundation (WCF) informs you of the passing of our Founder and President, Professor Dr. Christophe Boesch. He succumbed to a brief illness, and his departure leaves a significant void that will be deeply felt. The Wild Chimpanzee Foundation remains committed to the continuation of its exceptional conservation efforts without any disruption. In this challenging time, we express our utmost gratitude for your unwavering support.
