Description: 

The Chimpanzee Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Trust (CSWCT) was established as a globally recognised collaborative conservation effort, geared towards developing and implementing a long-term strategy for conservation of chimpanzees and their habitat.

Projects: 

CSWCT established Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary in 1998 for the care and welfare of entrusted animals while conserving as far as possible the ecosystem of the island. CSWCT’s activities include welfare of individual captive chimpanzees entrusted to its care, long-term management of a sanctuary for confiscated individuals that cannot be returned to the wild, intervention to assist individuals in the wild when deemed necessary, conservation education of the general Ugandan public with particularly emphasis on chimpanzees, ecotourism, community participation, capacity building through training, and building viable national, regional and international partnerships on chimpanzee conservation. CSWCT ensures that all its work has the support and involvement of key stakeholders including local community and, as much as possible, becomes economically self-sustaining.
