Ape Cognition & Conservation Initiative

The Ape Cognition and Conservation Initiative (ACCI) is dedicated to the conservation and protection of Great Apes worldwide, as well as responsible and sustainable research aimed at uncovering the evolutionary origins of human language, cognition, and behavior. We aim to use the knowledge we gain from studies with great apes to better humanity by increasing public knowledge of our species’ origins and our connection with the natural world.


ACCI is currently scheduling very limited public visits as we are working to develop our education programs with local schools and universities. Please check back in late 2015 for public open house dates. If you would like to schedule a tour for your school or organization, please contact us at info@apeinitiative.org .
