Save Botanical Gardens Entebbe

0 have signed. Let’s get to 10,000!

Entebbe Botanical Gardens is home to over 400 plant species, ranging from little known indigenous fruits and medicinal plants, to a wide range of ornamentals.

Here, you find representation of typical tropical rainforest and wetland ecosystems which attract vast numbers of birds, reptiles and apes, making it a good destination for animal lovers as well.

However, part of the 120-year-old gardens has been leased out to an investor — Megha Industries — who owns the adjacent Victoria Mall, to construct a sewage management plant. The land leased out is reported to be about half-an-acre.

That's according to the New Vision 

In a bid to save the Gardens, I am starting this petition to call upon the concerned parties starting with State House Entebbe, the president's official address and the gardens' immediate neighbor as well as the Ministry of Agriculture, Ministry of Water and Environment as well as the key company awarded the lease.

We need to protect and preserve these beautiful gardens' as well as the living creatures that call them home, not to mention the tourism potential the gardens' stand for. 

Please sign and also share this petition so we can help revert the lease decision
