The Budongo Conservation Field Station, founded in 1990, works to conserve the Budongo Forest in western Uganda and its wildlife, notably around 650 chimpanzees. We work with one chimpanzee community in particular, the Sonso community, living in the middle of the forest where our camp is located. We also conserve other forest species, and have ongoing education and community outreach programmes.
