Hi! I’m Alex, a 20 year old volunteer from the UK, studying a geography degree at the University of East Anglia. I volunteered at Tacugama for a month over the summer break. It was a life-changing experience, not only did I learn so much about Western Chimpanzees but also about the diverse culture that Sierra Leone has to offer as well as the challenges faced by conservation programs such as Tacugama in maintaining the countries remaining natural reserves.
