Meet “The Bulindi Survivors” so in need of the world’s attention – now!  In 2012, chimp researcher Matt McLennan returned to Uganda after a four-year absence to resume his study of a community of chimpanzees living in small forest fragments in Bulindi, Uganda.  Shockingly, the group of about 30 chimps now numbered just 19, almost all of their forest having been converted to farms growing crops like rice and tobacco.   Learn more about their situation, and meet the 19 survivors so in need of our help (below).  Follow Dr. McLennan’s  findings in his “Updates from the Field” blog.
