The Ape Populations, Environments, and Surveys (A.P.E.S.) database aims to provide an accurate and objective global picture on the distribution and status of great apes, and thus inform long-term management and conservation strategies for these taxa. This will be achieved by providing a user-friendly and interactive database to archive ape survey data which will be managed by a Data Review Working Group that produces regular reports on the status of great apes and reviews requests for data access.

A tabular overview  provides a comprehensive list of sites, previously and/ or currently inhabited by great apes. The list also summarizes important population parameters, data availability and information quality.
