Research and Conservation of Chimpanzees in Kibale National Park

Uganda has more than 50 per cent of the world’s chimpanzee species and the sector contributes over eight per cent to Uganda’s Gross Domestic Product. They have been conserved for tourists activities in Kibale Forest National Park, the Kyambura Gorge in Queen Elizabeth National Park, Semliki Wildlife Reserve, the Ngamba Chimpanzee Sanctuary Budongo and Kanyiyo Pabidi forest near Murchison Falls National Park.

Common Chimpazees (Pan troglodytes) are distinctive black-coated ape, more closely related to man than any other living creature. There are typically animals of the rainforest and woodlands from Guinea to western Uganda and are primarily frugivorous (fruit eating) but they do eat meat and even hunt on occasion.

In bid to avoiding the extinction of the chimpanzees, the Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA), French National Museum of History and Makerere University signed a Memorandum of Understanding for research and conservation of chimpanzees in Kibale National Park.
