|Town/Region||Agumatsa Wildlife Sanctuary|
|Date||1 Feb 2013|
The Agumatsa Wildlife Sanctuary is home to several wildlife, notably, mona monkeys, bats, over 200 bird and 400 butterfly species, populations of global significance, making it an area of great conservation importance.
As demand for energy and meat continue to intensify with increasing population, while knowledge on conservation is low, due to lack of community integration into the area’s environmental management system; wildlife population decreases and certain species are being extinct. The project aims therefore to offer community education on the importance of sustainable utilisation of natural resources and to integrate them into the local environmental management through a mobile education van.
