common chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes)

Uganda boasts an extraordinary diversity of habitats, scenery, and wildlife species. The string of protected areas along Uganda's western border with the Democratic Republic of Congo, in the Albertine Rift, harbors half the world's mountain gorillas, huge populations of hippos, as well as elephants, chimpanzees, lions, and much more. Because this wildlife is losing ground, USAID and the Wildlife Conservation Society aim to investigate the effects of climate change and habitat destruction on the survival of these species.
