Forest Conservation

Chimpanzee Trust encourages proper forest management and trains private forest owners to employ recommended forest management procedures. We use national guidelines and other existing frameworks. In Hoima, we partner with St. Josephs Vocational Training College Munteme to manage Itohya forest. The Chimpanzee Trust has also worked with 342 Private Forest Owners under the pilot-PES project, who conserved 1680 hectares of tropical forest.
