Environment and Nature: Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary
An hour boat ride from Entebbe, Uganda on Lake Victoria is Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary. The 100-acre island is home to more than three dozen chimpanzee confiscated from poachers. The chimps are able to roam the island in a setting as close to the freedom of the forest they once knew. Caregivers watch over the chimps and work closely with the animals to ensure their wellbeing.
