Lwiro Primate Rehabilitation Center (Centre de Rehabilitation des Primates de Lwiro, or CRPL) was created in 2002. They currently look after 92 chimpanzees and 108 monkeys of 13 different species, all of them victims of the pet trade and/or poaching. Without centers like Lwiro no confiscation of captive animals would be possible, which also makes them essential for law enforcement. The chimpanzees and monkeys at Lwiro have become ambassadors for their wild cousins. Their education and sensitization program reaches more than 4.500 people every year.
