Mission Statement

The Bonobo Conservation Initiative (BCI) is a non-profit organization founded in 1998, dedicated to ensuring the survival of the bonobo ( Pan paniscus) and its tropical rainforest habitat in the Congo Basin. By working with indigenous Congolese people through cooperative conservation and community development programs, as well as on national and international policy, BCI is establishing new protected areas, improving communities, and leading efforts to safeguard bonobos wherever they are found.


BCI has received international recognition for its innovative and progressive style and its considerable list of accomplishments, making it an ideal organization for prospective volunteers with an interest or focus in conservation and/or community development.
