There are many animals in the world. Even we don’t know the exact number of them. Recently, it’s difficult to find some species because they already threaten and most of them become extinct. We can’t find the great ape called chimpanzees easily in the Africa forest. The largest population of chimpanzees are in central Africa, mainly Gabon, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), and Cameroon. It’s about 150,000 to 250,000 individuals (WWF,n.d). Their population keeps decreasing rapidly each year. Although this problem already handled by big organization, government and others, but the chimpanzees life aren’t safe. It is caused by many reasons, the human activities are one of the big problem that made chimpanzee become in endangered. Such as deforestation …show more content…

It is the main reason why chimpanzees used in experiment. The scientist used several chimpanzee to find new medicine for example HIV/AIDS vaccine. Until now the result is none, and there are many chimpanzees killed for it. We know to find something new, we must sacrifice something. For example sacrifice chimpanzees to find new medicine, but let’s think for the future if the scientists use it. Sometimes Chimpanzees will be extinct
