UWEC – UGANDA WILDLIFE EDUCATION CENTER
Opened in 1952 by the colonial government, the then, Entebbe Zoo served major purposes of a sanctuary and rehabilitation center for the orphaned, sick, injured and those animal species confiscated from animal traffickers. About 08yrs later, the establishment graduated to a fully-fledged zoo thus the name Entebbe Zoo. Due to this, Entebbe Zoo housed non-indigenous animal species like tigers and bears as a way of getting people to visit. In 1994 Entebbe Zoo upgraded from being a mere Zoo to a Conservation and Wildlife Education Centre.
