1 day Entebbe Zoo tour to Uganda wildlife education center (UWEC) formerly known as Entebbe Zoo was established in 1952 by the colonial government for which the most important and main purpose was to protect the wild animals that were found as casualties. And besides that, it’s one of the most prominent conservation education institutions in Africa that’s carrying out mandates of educating Ugandans about the importance of conserving the country’s biodiversity.

Most importantly, it plays a role in rescuing and rehabilitating injured, orphaned and confiscated wildlife. Because it breeds endangered wildlife species in captivity and later takes them back in the wild so as to prevent the extinction of their kind.
