Restoring the home of our closest living relative
Only 5000 chimpanzees remain in Uganda, and their habitat is shrinking due to a growing demand for charcoal and firewood. Chimpanzees are shy animals, but have been forced to leave the forest in search of food, creating conflicts with farmers. Together with the Jane Goodall Institute, we plant tree corridors that connect remaining forests, so chimps can safely move between them. We also introduce students to the value of trees and promote the use of efficient stoves to tackle the root of the problem.
