Save Rwenzori snow caps
Nature/wildlife safaris in Uganda and Kenya
Joseph Masereka was born and raised in the countryside of Uganda on the slopes of Mount Rwenzori in Kasese. Graduated with wildlife and allied natural resource management at Uganda wildlife research and training institute. After my college I volunteered with Queen Elizabeth NPK majoring in research on the invasive species, working with the local schools, monitoring wildlife in the park and that’s when I fell in love with primates and decided to help create hope for the chimpanzees. I joined Ngamba island chimpanzee sanctuary as an intern at the end of 2014 working with the animals. Since then I realized that orphaned chimps need another home and which is provided at Ngamba island. In 2015 I was given a full-time job as a caregiver helping in giving guided tours to guests about primates plus other wildlife at the sanctuary and hand-raising orphans, integration process, food preparation and feeding, cleaning their facilities which provides a safe and pleasant place to live an. In 2018 I moved to the United States of America for the international cultural exchange program with Walt Disney World for a year where I was a savanna Guide working with the Disney Animal Kingdom for a year. During my stay, I volunteered with different primate sanctuaries during my stay in the USA like a center for great apes Florida, International Primate Protection League, Summerville SC and North West Chimpanzee Sanctuary Washington state. The animals need to live and we people are responsible for their population decline lets join hands together to protect their future so that we shall not be blamed for their extinction.
