Established in 1995, Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary is located in the beautiful Western Area Peninsula Forest Reserve, close to Freetown, the capital of Sierra Leone. The sanctuary covers 100 acres of important rainforest and watershed.

Tacugama was established in 1995 to home and rehabilitate confiscated, orphaned and abandoned chimps. It is illegal in Sierra Leone to hunt, capture, kill or keep chimpanzees—the sanctuary now takes care of over 90 chimps. Much work is also undertaken towards stopping the illegal trade of this endangered species and supporting the protection and conservation of chimpanzees in the wild through education, communication and legal enforcement.

Underwater ultrasound? You bet!UW-EVO

This specially made system uses all IBEX® EVO® internals and has a hardwired probe. It uses a machined aluminum case to keep cool, so it doesn’t have a fan and is completely waterproof. A USB port is hidden behind the big HEX plug—WiFi is functional so file transfers can be done wirelessly.

The unit weighs in at 9.75 pounds and can operate at a depth of up to 10m. It is slightly negatively buoyant, so a tether is recommended, using the existing 4 rings on the case. USB is accessible via a side port.

You’ll acquire a higher quality (and larger!) ovary image scanning at 6cm than you will at 12cm. In addition, become familiar with your equipment; experiment with gain, contrast, and persistence in order to achieve the image that you desire.
