Having been to Uganda, let me say this.. when Westerners
get interested in "glorified monkeys", be they chimps or gorillas,
tourism goes up. Tourism creates jobs and govenrment's dedication
to keeping the tourists safe. Tha means troops move in and
rebels/bandits get chased out. So, "glorified monkeys" are just
what they need.. even more than charity groups, who many times
never make it to those in need as the areas aren't safe.
