The Chimpanzees

Although chimps and humans are closely related, share more than 98% of our genetic blueprint. It has become dangerous to be a chimpanzee! Visit Us & learn how you can help save the few that survive.

African Elephant

"Africa's elephants continue to face an immediate threat to their survival from high levels of poaching for their ivory," (John E Scanlon, CITES Secretary-General) Help UWEC build a home for the rescued 3 year baby elephant and teach Ugandans about the need to peacefully live with other creatures.

The Giraffes

Thanks to their towering legs and long necks, a giraffe's legs alone are taller than many humans- about 6 feet. Visit UWEC and Learn more.

African Lions

Lion numbers have dropped from an already reduced 450,000 down to just 20,000 and possibly even lower today. Visit us and learn how you can help.

The Centre's location on the edge of Lake Victoria, its rich vegetation and its surprisingly wide range of birds, butterflies and other indigenous animals make it an attractive venue for education as well as a pleasing one for those who visit, whether Ugandans or people from overseas.

UWEC boasts of a wide variety of wildlife species in the Mammal, Reptile, Bird and Primate sections. Most of the animals that come to UWEC have been rescued from smugglers, poachers or the community.

Bring your class or pupils along for a visit at UWEC Zoo and join us on the learning journey which helps you discover the unique aspects of animals under our care! Come close to them, explore, enjoy and learn how you can help save mother earth today.
