The Laikipia Forum is pleased to announce the inception of the Mukogodo Forest Support Project, part of a series of Rapid Response Grants in partnership with the BIOPAMA (Biodiversity and Protected Areas Management), which is supported by the European Union and the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States.
The € 50,000 Mukogodo Forest Support grant enhances communication, security and wildlife/habitat monitoring in the Mukogodo Forest Reserve in the face of the COVID pandemic. It is implemented by the ILMAMUSI Mukogodo Forest Association with the support of the Forum and LEWA Wildlife Conservancy for a period of 12 months beginning February 2021 to January 2022.
The overall objective of this Project is to ensure that the Association’s rangers can engage effectively in security and conservation measures in the Forest. The Project allows them to join the radio network of security forces in the landscape and provides the means for them to join the wildlife monitoring efforts as well.
