The Lwiro Sanctuary also known as the Centre for Rehabilitation of Primates came into existence in the year 2002 by two Conservation bodies of Congo namely; Institut Congolais pour la Conservation de la Nature (ICCN) and the Centre de Recherché en Sciences Naturelles (CRSN). This was at the peak of the second Congo War (1998 – 2004) where the poaching was very rampant and the officials opted to set up a safe haven for the Orphaned Chimpanzees.
