The conservation of the world’s great apes is dependent on examining the threats they face within the broader context of economic and community development. The State of the Apes book series, intended for a broad audience of policy makers, academics, researchers, NGOs, and other experts, explores the interrelated factors that affect great apes’ well-being with objectivity, rigor, and relevance. Each book in the series explores a different theme. On the State of the Apes website, which launched in 2014, you can download chapters from the books, watch videos from experts in the field, and browse the research and reports that inspired the series.
