THE UGANDA WILDLIFE EDUCATION CENTER (UWEC)
The Uganda Wildlife Education Center in Entebbe was created by Government of Uganda with the help of the Wildlife conservation center in New York. The center has grown considerably in recent years and hosts a variety of wildlife. UWEC is not a zoo as the center environment has been designed to be as close as possible to the wild. At the center, visitors are able to observe many of the indigenous species to be found in Uganda and also to receive comprehensive information on the species, their natural habitats and the complex ecologies of Uganda.
