Since 1997, The Kasiisi Project has supported the conservation of Uganda’s Kibale National Park by supporting communities dedicated to protecting and stewarding their lands, waters and wildlife. With nearly half of Uganda’s population under age 15, young people have a significant role to play in preserving the country's natural resources, both now and in the future. Our program primarily targets the 8,000 children attending 16 forest-edge primary schools. By fostering a connection between education and conservation, we are informing and inspiring a new generation of Ugandan conservationists.

"While pangolins have great defenses against their natural predators, they’re rather easy targets for poachers. They’re slow moving and when curled tightly in a ball, they’re easy to scoop up and drop in a bag. Up to 200,000 African and Asian pangolins are killed every year, mostly for their scales, which are mistakenly thought to cure various ailments. Experts say they’re the most trafficked, or illegally traded, mammal in the world. All eight species are in danger of extinction because of poaching. Protecting them is an international - and urgent - effort. There’s plenty we can do to help that cause, wherever we are, and lots of organizations are stepping up to the plate." [The Kasiisi Project]
