Ecosystem restoration in Nyungwe National Park TEST
Exotic plant species constitute a serious threat to native biodiversity and ecosystem functioning in Nyungwe National Park; however, they are a potential source of income generation and livelihood enhancement for the local poor people living around the Park. The aim of this project is creating a win-win situation (where both the ecosystem and local people will have equal benefits) through eradication of exotic plant species, job creation, and timber provision to local poor people living in high risk zones around the Park.
"We wish to tell you that you were very helpful in supporting BIOCOOP to get grants from your good Foundation and without your support a number of indigenous tree species and animals in Nyungwe National Park could not be healthy! But now more than 35 hectares were restored and biodiversity conservation was taught to many folks in Rwanda."
