The Kibale Chimpanzee Project, Kibale National Park, Uganda was established in 1987 by Dr. Richard Wrangham.

The Kibale Snare Removal Program is one of the conservation initiatives of the project. Chimpanzees are not the target of Ugandans who snare small ungulates but they are caught nevertheless and serious injury, maiming, amputations and even death can follow.

In this film a team of four local rangers are shown doing their work which also includes the education of Ugandan children about chimpanzees.

A senior ranger shows how snares work in this short film.
