Since 1997, The Kasiisi Project has supported the conservation of Uganda’s Kibale National Park by supporting communities dedicated to protecting and stewarding their lands, waters and wildlife. With nearly half of Uganda’s population under age 15, young people have a significant role to play in preserving the country's natural resources, both now and in the future. Our program primarily targets the 8,000 children attending 16 forest-edge primary schools. By fostering a connection between education and conservation, we are informing and inspiring a new generation of Ugandan conservationists.

"Like all of the African great apes, chimpanzees are endangered by habitat destruction and hunting. Chimps are also stolen from the wild to be sold as pets. When taken, they’re just tiny infants, but soon grow to become extremely strong and very intelligent. Their human caretakers quickly learn it’s difficult and dangerous to keep them in a home. Some end up in sanctuaries, but many end up in worse situations. Chimpanzees and other wildlife belong in their natural habitats. In Uganda, groups like the Kibale Chimpanzee Project and the Uganda Wildlife Authority are studying chimps to understand how we can better protect them. The Kasiisi Project works with Ugandan school children to teach an appreciation and respect for chimps and other wildlife." [The Kasiisi Project]
