National networks of NGOs, government agencies and community groups will collect low-cost, simple but scientifically robust data, building on a successful model in Kenya. Information will feed into site management as well as national and international policy.
This project aims to contribute to stemming the rate of biodiversity loss in Africa through providing on-the-ground assessments of how affective the protection afforded by these areas actually is and the effectiveness of conservation.
