"To everyone of the Chimpanzee Trust family, I extend to you my sincerest wishes for a Happy New Year. As we start 2019, Iwould like to thank all our trustees, staff, supporters and volunteers for the efforts during 2018 – a time of change, 20th anniversary celebrations and, of course, ever-increasing need to fundraise for the Chimpanzees on the island and sustaining human-wildlife relationship.
2019 is a thrilling time for the Trust as we embark on our new strategic plan. This new way forward aims to better reflect our work for chimpanzees, not just on Ngamba, but in the Albertine Graben and to enable us to send our conservation message nationwide and beyond borders.
As we celebrate the New Year, I wish all of you, and your families, good health and prosperity. Let us uphold our culture of praying everyday before we begin the day's work, but also believe that we are going to make it happen in 2019.

Welcome to Ngamba Island
A peaceful home for rescued chimps
Surrounded by the peaceful waters of Lake Victoria, Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary is home to 49 orphaned chimpanzees rescued from across East Africa. Chimpanzee Sanctuary and Wildlife Conservation Trust (CSWCT), an NGO, is responsible for all aspects of the sanctuary. Deeply committed to and involved in both field conservation and community education, we work closely with the Ugandan government and wildlife authorities. We offer both day and overnight visits to the sanctuary which provides an exceptional opportunity to closely observe these fascinating great apes in our unique setting.
