Great apes are endangered due to poaching, deforestation, habitat loss and habitat fragmentation. Studying the interactions between great apes, their environment and local population is necessary for understanding the adaptability of great apes to habitat disturbance and to assess the specific threats in the local context. Development of the human communities is expected to result from conservation strategies suggested from such studies. This preliminary study compares how food availability and human activities influence the local distribution of apes belonging to the two species of the genus Pan , chimpanzees Pan troglodytes schweinfurthii and bonobos Pan paniscus. Chimpanzees and bonobos were surveyed in areas where these species are not eaten by local people respectively at Sebitoli in the Northern part of Kibale National Park in Western Uganda and at Embinima in the community conservation area of the non-governmental organization Mbou-Mon-Tour, Democratic Republic of Congo DRC. A long term study has recently started in these two sites, associated with the establishment of a process of habituation of the ape communities studied. The study periods cover 11 months in Uganda and seven months in DRC in We collected ad libitum data direct observation and indirect signs of apes and human beings during the habituation process.
