Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary was founded in 1998 in Uganda by Dr. Jane Goodall and a group of founding trustees. They have 95 acres of natural forest habitat for 48 orphaned chimpanzees that have been rescued from the illegal wildlife trade. On July 30th at the Fenix Supper Club in San Rafael CA, I will be hosting a concert benefiting #NgambaIslandChimpanzeeSanctuary. This event will also be streaming live on the Fenix’s website. 50% of all ticket sales will go to Ngamba Island in #Uganda #EastAfrica. 100% of all raffle proceeds and direct donations will go to our cause. Thank you to the Fenix and all the performers for their generous contributions. Please visit http://chimpchampcause.wix.com/ngambaislandconcert for more information.
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.
