The project is being implemented in six villages along the shores of Lake Tanganyika, one of Africa's Great Lakes. Lake Tanganyika holds nearly as much water as all the U.S. Great Lakes combined - an impressive 17 percent of the world's freshwater - and is home to over 250 species of fish found nowhere else in the world. The ecosystem covers a 4.8-million-acre forested landscape that is home to approximately 93 percent of Tanzania's 2,800 endangered chimpanzees.

A map to the Center is available at Note: Photo identification is required. Please allow additional time to pass through security.

Please RSVP to with your name and affiliation.
