Wildlife Education Center

  • Wildlife

    The Uganda Wildlife Education Centre (UWEC) was opened in 1952 by the Colonial Government then, as an animal Orphanage that offered sanctuary to young animals found abandoned in protected areas due to the death or poaching of parent animals.

    In the early 1960s, it became a traditional zoo until 1994 when it was converted into a Wildlife Education Centre.
