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.
I am professional photographer, videographer, and the CEO of Chris Austria Safaris Ltd. in Uganda. Before moving to this beautiful country, I lived in Ethiopia, and Rwanda. My travel company offers customized wildlife, cultural, and photographic safaris in Uganda, and Rwanda. I’m very passionate about sharing the stunning beauty, culture, people, fashion, food and wildlife from the Pearl Of Africa.
When I lived in the US, I worked with tigers, lions, and other animals for many years at Six Flags in Vallejo, CA and the San Francisco Zoo. This rewarding career inspired me to focus my energies towards wildlife conservation, tourism, and protecting endangered species.
