Where we work
Since 2013 NRCN has worked in Uganda to help conserve fauna and flora in the Pearl of Africa. Working closely with the Uganda Police, Judiciary and Wildlife Authority our goal is to enhance wildlife populations for the benefit of today’s and future generations.
Our work covers the whole of Uganda and the 10 national parks and 12 wildlife reserves as well as five community wildlife management areas and 13 wildlife sanctuaries which come under the jurisdiction of the Uganda Wildlife Authority. These parks are home to over 1000 species of birds, 13 types of primates including over half of the world’s endangered mountain gorillas and of course Africa’s big five.
From the rich backdrop of the Rift Valley and tropical forests to the traditional savannas of Africa, Uganda has a biodiverse flora and fauna that needs to be protected to preserve wildlife populations for future generations.
Overfishing, hunting, wildlife crime and a growing human population have put many forms of wildlife in danger and it is our goal to help preserve as much of the native flora and fauna of Uganda as is possible.
Through the investigation, arrest, and prosecution of wildlife crimes we are helping to preserve the wildlife of Uganda and put a stop to corrupt practices.
