Wildlife Conservation

Uganda is one of the richest countries in Africa for biodiversity conservation, ranking second richest for mammals (and 13th in the World), second for birds, and seventh for higher plants. This is because several major Biomes meet here, each with their associated fauna and flora. Uganda is also home to several species whose global range is mostly confined to Uganda, such as mountain gorillas, Rothschild giraffe, Uganda mangabey, and Nahan’s francolin. Therefore, to protect these populations from further decline, our on-the-ground safeguards involves training rangers and the local communities with the rightful knowledge and skills necessary for wildlife conservation. Wildlife must survive in their natural habitats, so we empower local communities through conservation-friendly development and work with other stakeholders to protect Africa’s natural resources.

Critical to protecting these vital ecosystems are people. While sharing land with the wildlife , communities often suffer from wildlife-human conflicts leading to struggles for space and water. If people and wildlife learn to live together — inside and outside of protected areas — the future for all will thrive. The goal of wildlife conservation is to ensure the survival of these species, and to educate people on living sustainably with other species.
