It is hard for me to believe that it has been 10 years since my first trip to East Africa and Uganda in particular. At the time I was contemplating going back to school to become a veterinarian and my time at Ngamba Island solidified this for me. To come back to Uganda as such and to help teach fellow veterinarians about great ape medicine was a very rewarding and reflective experience for me.  Over the next few weeks I will post some of my photos and experiences from my most recent trip.  I took this photo of the captain of our boat heading back across Lake Victoria after a day at Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary.
