About Us

The Kasese Wildlife Conservation Awareness program benefits both wildlife and humans in the Kasese District of Uganda. Asaba Mukobi, originally from Uganda, started this program due to the lack of information available to local people about wildlife.

Benefiting Both People and Wildlife

Our program benefits both the people and wildlife of Uganda, from our Wildlife Resource Center with free access to the public to planting trees, building fuel-efficient stoves, and helping ex-poachers find alternative livelihoods.

Kasese District

Kasese district was formed in 1974 under the Provincial Administration of Rwenzori district that was curved out of Tooro. Prior to this, it was part of Toro kingdom that comprised the present districts of Bundibugyo, Kabarole, Kyenjojo, Kamwenge and Kasese.
