Sustainability on Rubondo Island
Located in the southwest corner of Lake Victoria, Rubondo Island is Africa’s largest island national park. It has been protected since colonial times, when chimpanzee were introduced. The descendants of this population are now being habituated so that you may see them. Tourism is essential to turn this rare corner of Africa into a viable conservation economy. Improving the economic prospects of local villagers will help ensure these species continue to thrive.
