Korofin and Wongo National Park (both IUCN category: II) are components of the Bafing Biosphere Reserve in southern Mali, which is the only protected area for chimpanzees within the Manding Plateau area. Woodlands dominate most of the landscape.
In Mali, chimpanzee density is very low (probably 0.08-0.27 per km2) (Duvall, C.S., 2008).

From February to December 2004 Chris S. Duvall surveyed chimpanzee dirstribution comparing wildlife habitat use and availiability. Each survey loop was designed to pass through several areas where chimpanzee abundance appeared high, based on nest encounters during reconnaissance surveys, which were conducted during May and July 2003.
