The Bay Chapter’s Population, Health & Environment Committee and the Institute for Population Studies invite you to a talk on the Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary, and efforts to save chimpanzees in the face of human population growth and other pressures.
Founded by Dr. Jane Goodall and a group of founding trustees, the Sanctuary provides natural forest habitat for 48 orphaned chimps that have been rescued from the illegal wildlife trade.
Chris Austria is a wildlife conservationist working in partnership with the Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary in Uganda. He will give a photo presentation about the chimpanzees at the Sanctuary, and the conservation work that is being done to preserve their natural habitats.
