I am honored to be working with The Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary located on the peaceful waters of Lake Victoria in Uganda. The Sanctuary is home to 48 chimpanzees that have been rescued from the illegal wildlife trade in Uganda and other parts of Africa. They live on 95 acres of natural forest. This photo is of Tumbo (in the middle). He is a ladies man, and is enjoying the day with Sara (right) and Pasa (left). Although Tumbo has grayish hair, he is not an older chimpanzee. I thing the grey makes him look classy and distinguished like George Clooney. Chimpanzees live in tight knit communities, and have very complex social dynamics within their society.
My passions in life are wildlife conservation, animals, travel, food, wine, cultures, traditions, and learning languages. I worked with tigers and lions for many years in the U.S. This experience inspired within me a deep desire to protect endangered species. Currently, I am working for Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary in Uganda. During my time here in East Africa, I have seen the importance of community based eco-tourism, and conservation.
