Nature Uganda (NU)
NatureUganda (NU) is a branch of the East Africa Natural History Society (EANHS) in Uganda. EANHS was set up in 1909, making it the oldest conservation organisation in East Africa. It started as a scientific organisation with the primary aim of documenting wildlife diversity in East Africa.
By 1994, EANHS-Uganda had attracted more members and engaged in other activities including scientific research, conservation action, raising public awareness, advocacy and research. In response to this, the Society streamlined operations by registering the Uganda branch as a non-profit independent national organisation in 1995 with the operative name: NatureUganda - The East Africa Natural History society branch in Uganda. During the same period, NU joined the BirdLife International partnership and became the BirdLife partner in Uganda.
NU is now the leading membership-based conservation organisation in Uganda championing the protection of birds and their habitats.
