Support Chimpanzees through Global Giving Fundraiser
Chimpanzee Trust is participating in the Global Giving Fundraiser which starts on 8th -26th June 2020. We call upon our champions to support chimpanzees through the Global Giving Fundraiser by clicking Donate
The current travel restrictions, caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, have affected the tourism industry that contributes 50% of the cost of operations for the care and welfare of 50 orphaned chimpanzees as well as sponsoring wild chimpanzee monitoring and habitat restoration programs.
Donations and support from a struggling economy in Uganda have dried up, risking the lives and welfare of the animals at the sanctuary and hampering protection of the wild chimpanzees.
Your support during the Global Giving day fundraiser of 18 days will enable Chimpanzee Trust;
- To provide for the care of 50 orphaned chimpanzees at the sanctuary with food and medicine.
- To support the monitoring of wild chimpanzee populations to reduce the risk of introduction of the COVID-19 disease in the wild population and enhance community sensitization to the risk of the disease and hopefully reduce human-wildlife conflict.
- To air Radio messages which will continue to bring environmental education to students at stranded at home.
We believe that your support today will result into long term results through;
- The survival of the orphaned and rescued chimpanzees on Ngamba Island as a representation of the plight of the species.
- The protection of wild chimpanzees and reduction in the destruction of their forest habitat.
- The reduction of human-wildlife conflict Continuation of conservation and environment education to children affected by the shut-down of schools due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
