Uganda Wildlife Conservation Center

We went to the Wildlife Conservation Center before taking our friends to the airport Monday. It was an awesome visit, we had a guide that was very knowledgeable about the animals. They take in animals that are hurt or that have been smuggled in. Zebras that were found running through streets in the city, chimpanzees smuggled in at the airport and a huge crocodile found in a town very near our village that had killed a few people. Raelee pet a rhino, and we witnessed lions fighting while hyenas cried out in excitement. The chimpanzees scuffled and put on  a show for us, one concentrated on retrieving a piece of fruit from the lagoon with a stick. A spoonbill stork greeted us by clacking his beak, our guide said he does this to welcome visitors. Then he went back to eating! It was a great day until we had to say goodbye to our friends, especially Donny Lee!
