A donation is made to the Chimp Trust for all tours that visit Kibale Forest National Park, Uganda.

The Chimp Trust works on two main areas of Chimpanzee conservation in Uganda. The first is to protect the remaining populations and restore the former ranges of Chimpanzee and their natural habitats. The second is their ‘Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary’, which provides a safe home and dedicated staff to care for rescued chimpanzees from the illegal wildlife trade.

The Chimp Trust’s primary aim is protect the remaining wild chimpanzee populations, their forest habitats in the west of Uganda and create wildlife corridors so that these populations aren’t isolated from other groups. These aims are being achieved by wildlife education, monitoring the chimps, reforestation and community development to give residents bordering the forests an alternate income then from the forests resources. The Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary is located on an island in Lake Victoria, off shore from Entebbe town and is home to rescued chimpanzees. These chimps were mainly confiscated from the illegal wildlife trade and can’t be returned to the wild.
