IPPL Members Meeting 2010

The Centre de Rehabilitation des Primates de Lwiro was asked to present the sanctuary at the 2010 International Primate Protection League’s Members Meeting in South Carolina, USA. The IPPL has become a very important sponsor for the CRPL and they even covered all costs for me to attend the meeting to get the plight of the CRPL out to a more mainstream audience. The goal of the meeting is primarily to showcase the work the IPPL has been doing so that their members see where their donations are going.

I presented a 45 minute PowerPoint presentation with lots of pictures to the members and fellow speakers and I felt it went well. The feeling of the meeting was overwhelmingly supportive and encouraging; everybody at that meeting was interested in one thing: Primate welfare and conservation.

We at the CRPL would like to extend a huge thankyou to IPPL for their support and encouragement. This was an amazing opportunity for the CRPL!
