In a bid to conserve and promote Uganda’s beauty and biodiversity through an innovative approach to higher education, Victoria University has partnered with global conservationist and media influencer Arturo Islas Allende, to establish an environment and conservation centre at the University.

Addressing the media during the signing of partnership, the University Vice Chancellor Professor Lawrance Muganga noted that the University recognizes the urgency of these issues that is why it has resolved to establish the Arturo Islas Allende Environment and Conservation Centre.

Meanwhile Arturo Islas Allende says Uganda faces challenges in biodiversity conservation, ranging from inadequate protection of key areas to issues at the district and community levels, and the partnership will address these challenges.
