300 or more wild chimpanzees cling to survival on village land in Uganda's Hoima District (https://bmcecol.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s12898-015-0052-x).
Most conservation efforts understandably focus on great apes inside government-managed protected areas. But who speaks for the unlucky 300 Hoima chimpanzees living outside such areas?
The Bulindi Chimpanzee & Community Project is a small grassroots organzation. We're devoted exclusively to finding effective solutions to conserve Hoima's chimpanzees and improve lives of people living alongside them.
We're shortlisted for a grant from EOCA European Outdoor Conservation Association. If successful, this award will provide much needed funds to support our work on the ground. Please vote for us here: bit.ly/VoteForBulindiChimps (we are the third down).
Rohen is Maureen's youngest son. Although not yet four, he's quite an independent chap already. Rohen's little sister Lucia came along when he was only two and a half, which is very young for an infant chimp to be relegated to second priority by mum. But Rohen didn't seem too troubled by the experience and enjoys romping around with Lucia. Rohen is the proud owner of the largest pair of ears in Bulindi.
