      ... The following document is the fifth edition developed by the Veterinary Standards Committee of the American Association of Zoo Veterinarians to be used as a guideline for zoos and aquariums in developing and evaluating the medical programs in their institutions. The Veterinary Medical Program encompasses the routine medical and surgical care of the collection and the preventive medicine program. In order for the veterinary staff to support these programs of veterinary care, a hospital facility appropriate to the collection's needs is required. It is hoped that this document will be an aid in the accreditation of zoos and aquariums by the American Zoo and Aquarium Association.

      This document represents the consensus of views from forestry and wildlife conservation agencies in Nigeria and Cameroon, local and international nongovernmental conservation organizations, and university-based researchers who met at a series of workshops in Cameroon and Nigeria to formulate a set of actions that, if implemented, will increase the long-term survival prospects of the Nigeria-Cameroon chimpanzee.

The Nigeria-Cameroon chimpanzee is the most endangered of all currently recognized chimpanzee subspecies, with a total remaining population of between 3,500 and 9,000 living in forested habitat to the north of the Sanaga River in Cameroon, the eastern edge of Nigeria, and in forest fragments in the Niger Delta and southwestern Nigeria
