Building conservation capacity in Sierra Leone
The RSPB has had a 20-year history of supporting front line conservation in Sierra Leone.
- Build the capacity of the Conservation Society of Sierra Leone to be an effective and leading environmental charity in Sierra Leone and the West African sub region.
- Ensure that the environment agenda becomes a high priority on government and donor agendas.
- Ensure that CSSL diversifies and increases its income to become less reliant on RSPB funds.
- Help CSSL protect Sierra Leone's remaining forests, wetlands and globally threatened species.
- CSSL is established as Sierra Leone's leading environmental and biodiversity conservation NGO.
- During the difficult days of the country's civil war (1990s) and afterwards, their unflagging dedication has been an inspiration.
- CSSL produced a 5 book environmental source book for teachers in the early 1990s.
- CSSL produced the Important Birds of Sierra Leone book in 2006.
