Fantastic - anything that can be done to help with educating the locals & stopping the poaching is a good thing. Its been 13 years since I last visited Uganda - I was so lucky to see the Mountain Gorillas at the Magahinga NP - it was an experience I will never forget. I have a huge photo of the silverback on my wall in the hallway that I love to show off to anyone that visit my house. And another one of an Ele crossing the Zambezi River near Vic Falls in Zimbabwe.
