Ifrane National Park (INP) in the Middle Atlas Mountains of Morocco is the stronghold of the Barbary macaque population, with approximately half of the surviving species living there. INP had been identified as a main source of poaching where juveniles are often targeted to be sold as pets, mainly for European consumers. Funded by the Dutch Postcode Lottery, initiated by AAP Animal Advocacy and Protection, and executed together with IFAW in the Kingdom of Morocco, “Born to be Wild” was a three year project focused on the sustainable protection of the Barbary macaque.
