Within this rich narrative, we see the daily life of the Bulindi chimpanzees, navigating the delicate balance between humanity and nature. Director Abigail Lees shares gripping moments of the chimps navigating a main highway, symbolising their daily struggle. This sets the stage for the Bulindi Chimpanzee Habitat Restoration Project, a nature conservation initiative carried out collaboratively by DGB and its local NGO partner, the Bulindi Chimpanzee & Community Project (BCCP).
Established in 2015, the project aims to protect the habitat of the Bulindi chimpanzees and supporting local communities. Through strategic reforestation and afforestation, the distribution of energy-saving stoves, and the implementation of conservation farming, the project’s multifaceted efforts aim to foster a harmonious coexistence between humans and chimpanzees, echoing the broader message resonating throughout Planet Earth III.
This endeavour extends beyond the realm of conservation, embracing the holistic wellbeing of local communities. Educational initiatives, small household projects, and the provision of clean water form the fabric of the project. The Bulindi Chimpanzee Habitat Restoration Project is not just a conservation effort but a model for sustainable cohabitation between wildlife and humanity.

The project has emerged as a transformative force in the region, solidifying its expertise and invaluable role within the community. Looking ahead, DGB aims to amplify and advance these impactful initiatives, particularly through reforestation and afforestation projects. The project involves planting 4.5 million trees, contributing to the capture of 4.3 million tonnes of CO2. As a publicly traded company, DGB, in partnership with BCCP, is committed to scaling these efforts, fostering substantial positive change for both nature in Uganda and its inhabitants. Adhering to stringent industry standards to generate top-quality carbon credits ensures that the project receives the recognition it merits, fostering a more extensive and lasting impact across the entire region.
