About 40,000 hectares of natural forests are lost every year in Uganda alone, because of deforestation. 60 percent of this is in Chimpanzee Habitat. We encourage those visiting the Island to plant a tree in an effort to support restoration efforts in the Albertine Rift Area. You may also adopt a tree/tress for the conservation of chimps by donating to Chimpanzee Trust.
We would like to thank everyone who took part in the World Chimpanzee day celebration on 14th July. We were able to get donations of $350 worth 350 trees which are being planted at Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary and Hoima in the chimpanzee corridors. We can do more to reach the target of planting 3500 trees this month. You can donate a tree or more today.
