The Great Apes Survival Partnership (GRASP) is an innovative and ambitious partnership comprised of great ape range states faced with an immediate challenge: to lift the threat of imminent extinction faced by gorillas (Gorilla beringei, G. gorilla), chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes), bonobos (Pan paniscus) and orangutans (Pongo abelii, P. pygmaeus) across their ranges in Equatorial Africa and Southeast Asia.

GRASP's Work

GRASP's mission is to work as a coherent alliance to conserve wild populations of every great ape in their natural habitats, and to ensure that where apes and people interact, their interactions are both positive and sustainable.

GRASP also seeks to reduce the threats facing the same biodiversity-rich ecosystems which share the forests with the great apes and to illustrate what can be achieved through a genuine global partnership between myriad stakeholders.

To achieve these goals, GRASP targets the objectives outlined in the Global Strategy for the Survival of Great Apes , which was adopted at the Intergovernmental Meeting on Great Apes, held in Kinshasa, DR Congo, in 2005.
