To learn more about my collaborative NFT project with Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary in Uganda, visit NFT.ChrisAustria.com. A portion of sales from the chimp NFTs goes towards the feeding and veterinary care of the orphaned great apes. You will also receive a signed print that you can frame and hang on the wall. This handsome chimp is “Eddie” and one of my favorite great apes here. Eddie was rescued from a circus. Ngamba Island is home to 52 chimpanzees that have been rescued from the illegal wildlife and bushmeat trade..To learn more about their work, visit NgambaIsland.org.
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.
