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.


Help sustain and enhance efforts to create public awareness and conservation of wildlife in communities adjacent to the Queen Elizabeth National Park in Uganda.

Environmental Preservation and Restoration

Tree planting is a large part of habitat restoration and conservation and KWCAO plants approximately 3,000 to 4,000 trees in the district every year. 

Wildlife Resource Center

Relevant information enables people to create a positive change within their community.


To create a greater conservation impact, we expanded our efforts to protect the environment through the promotion of sustainable activities.


We support the community by helping schoolchildren create their own wildlife clubs.

Alternative Livelihoods for Community Members

KWCAO is meeting the community’s growing need for conservation education by reaching out to the adult members of the community.

Conservation Must Continue

The COVID-19 pandemic has shut down much of Uganda for a very long time but that hasn't stopped KWCAO from spreading conservation...

Compassion, in which all ethics must take root, can only attain its full breadth and depth if it embraces all living creatures and does not limit itself to humankind.
- Albert Schweitzer
