Preventing Loss of Biodiversity
Man made fires started deliberately, or accidentally, are a major threat to biodiversity at Mwabvi Wildlife Reserve, and to the population of ancient trees. They can affect the whole reserve each year, so we have made plans for a project:
* To test new fire fighting procedures and systems and improve/create teamwork amongst PAW, the National Park game scouts and the local population.
* To develop and deliver an education programme targeted at local schools, farmers and communities to reduce the instances of fires being started inside the reserve or on the reserve boundary.
Whilst we have a current plan in place to tackle fires, we need funds to put our bigger ideas into action.
