Friends of Chimps


We founded 'Friends of CSWCT' after a visit to the Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary in Uganda. Seeing all of the important work done by the Chimpanzee Sanctuary and Wildlife Conservation Trust (CSWCT) sparked our passion for chimpanzees and the people dedicated to serving them. In 2014, we started using the name 'Friends of Chimps' and we have been speaking up for our chimp friends ever since.

Over the years, we have maintained a special relationship with Ngamba Island and the Trust - something you will see reflected throughout this site and the work we do. While they were our original inspiration, we care about all chimps. That's why the conservation and welfare of chimpanzees worldwide has always been at the heart of our mission and it's what motivates us to support of all kinds of chimpanzee projects and to build our relationships with schools, zoos and other non-profits.
