Our mission is to protect bonobos, preserve their tropical rainforest habitat, and empower local communities in the Congo Basin. BCI is the only international organization solely dedicated to protecting wild bonobos and their rainforest habitat. Together with Congolese communities and organizations, the DRC government, and international partners, BCI is implementing innovative solutions to address the complex problem of bonobo conservation.
