This short-film highlights the conservation work of the Uganda Wildlife Education Center (UWEC) in Entebbe Uganda.
The center not only serves the country’s species as a rescue, rehabilitation and breeding center, but also works within the community to help educate locals about environmental and wildlife conservation issues.
UWEC is also a top destination for tourist visiting the country and looking to have unique wildlife experiences- like getting to interact with orphaned chimpanzees and meet endangered white rhinos!
From exclusive VIP behind-the-scenes tours and getting to be a “Keeper for a Day”, to long stay volunteer opportunities, proceeds from the UWEC’s programs help bring in much needed financial support for the non-government funded, self-sustaining center- which in turn allows its dedicated staff to continue safeguarding Africa’s wildlife and their habitats.
