CHIMPANZEE TRUST CELEBRATES FIRST EVER WORLD CHIMPANZEE DAY ON JULY 14th
With Uganda’s Chimpanzees continuously threatened by the habitat loss, disease, wildlife trafficking, and illegal hunting, this year’s World Chimpanzee Day provides the ideal opportunity for Chimpanzee Trust to highlight its commitment to reduce conflicts between chimpanzees and humans as part of its mission to promote chimpanzee conservation and environmental management for sustainable development.
Dr. Jane Goodall hopes that the day shall create awareness of the plight of Chimpanzees. “Because of the threats faced by the chimpanzees, because they are so special, I do hope you will join us on this very first World Chimpanzee Day, to highlight the amazing nature of these beings, and to shed light on the threats that they face. So please do join us. Join us for them”.
This year’s event in Hoima will feature a Conservation Media Camp (CMC) from July 13 to 15 in furtherance of an understanding of the Human-Wildlife Conflict Management and as a tool of media sensitization.
