ABOUT CHIMFUNSHI WILDLIFE ORPHANAGE TRUST
In 1995, the Chimfunshi Wildlife Orphanage Trust (CWOT) was established to ensure and protect the long term future of the sanctuary.

The centre is also used by local and international students researching chimpanzee behaviour, plant biology, birdlife and ethnic studies. The trust bears the cost of bringing groups of under privileged children to Chimfunshi, while those from affluent societies are charged a moderate fee to cover expenses.
