The common chimpanzees also known to be the closest human relatives thrive in enormous numbers in the tropical forests of Sub-Saharan African of which Uganda is gifted to have their considerable counts something that at times prompts travelers to undertake safaris to Uganda.
For more than 15 years, the surreal, provocative and inviting and
enchanting Jean Michel Krief's works concerning wildlife photography
along with the work that is carried out by his beloved wife Sabrina
Krief who is a credited veterinarian primatologist featuring the human
activity effects on the ecology and behavior of chimpanzees through
their combined project of Conservation of Great Apes have carried out
considerable outreach projects and great environmental education for the
conservation of these species which also impress travelers on safaris and tours in Uganda.
The French National Museum embarked on an exhibition from February to
March 21 in Paris’s Jardin des Plantes under the title of “ On The Track
Of Great Apes” whose aim is to enhance awareness of the apes lifestyle
in the tropical forests and the threat that surround them. At the same
time, the French Embassy in Nakasero Kampala, Kriefs and the Museum show
cased their works. The pictures of chimpanzees relaxing and feeding
with people watching them along with the surrounding communities were
very rewarding to look at. The products also attracted the attention of Uganda safari undertakers.
The photographic exhibition helps to bring out the closeness that
exists between humans and chimpanzees. For example in one of the
pictures, the chimps were seen collecting food and taking a nap in the
other. The Uganda’s Minister of Tourism acknowledged the photos noting
that these are testimonies that humans should commit themselves to
environmental protection rather than its destruction. The amazing
pictures also feature a range of findings that were gathered from
extensive ape studies by National Museum of Natural History. The
chimpanzees are very interesting to encounter face to face on Uganda safaris and tours
in Kibale National Park, Budongo and Kalinzu Forest Reserves not
forgetting Kyambura gorge and Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary.
