Conservation for Locked Down Ugandan Kids

Max has lost both feet to snares
Max has lost both feet to snares

The COVID-19 epidemic in Uganda has had broad negative impact on the environment. Family incomes have fallen in already cash strapped families as a result of a catestrophic decline in tourism an important source of foreign currency and jobs. In addition repeated lockdowns have interfered with local commerce. When things get touch people are more likely to illegally turn to the forest resources to make ends meet. Snares increased by 70% in one chimpanzee community home range in one month alone.

Through hard work and ingenuity The Kasiisi Project is continuing to bring its message oc conservation to teh community in new ways using radio broadcasts, childrens art and story telling competitions, activity booklets and citizen science projects whcih reach up to 30,000 people.
