Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 0925272) - Chimpanzee - Awarded $20,900 on June 23, 2009

Our mission is to conserve the population of chimpanzees in the Budongo Forest, Uganda. Objectives are to provide local people with conservation education, to remove snares from the forest, and to build a center which can provide veterinary services to wild chimpanzees country wide. The Budongo Conservation Field Station was established in 1990 and has been operating continuously ever since. It covers the Budongo Forest Reserve in Masindi District, Western Uganda. The target species is the chimpanzee, Pan troglodytes schweinfurthii, but we also conserve three forest monkey species.
