More than 450,000 trees planted and dedicated to chimpanzees in Uganda!

Mathius Lukwago, the CEO of Trees for the Future, Uganda, inspires us with his story.

He tells us that in the Kakumiro District of Western Uganda, chimpanzees (or chimps as he calls them) are struggling to survive due to habitat loss.

Out of compassion for the chimps, the Ndama Kakumiro tree planting project was created. This project works to address human conflicts between chimps and the community by planting trees to create an eco-friendly environment.

Some members of the Trees Uganda team preparing for planting.

To date, they have planted more than 450,00 trees! These trees were dedicated to the chimps in the region who have no home, and are struggling to survive. By planting trees for the chimps, the community will learn to appreciate the importance of wildlife so that they can spare them, Mathius tells us.

Further, Mathiuss shares that β€œI am passionate about conserving the environment, especially planting trees and conserving wildlife. Chimps in Kakumiro are struggling to survive, and I must do something to contribute to their survival. All of us can make a small contribution. When we combine these small actions, our planet can be better!”

Thank you for your words of wisdom, and for your story, Mathius! We are excited to learn more about your project, and to tell our community about your remarkable work!
