Biodiversity is vital for our very existence. We are working with communities in Malawi to restore biodiversity by protecting fish breeding areas along Lake Malawi and by protecting indigenous forests.
Lake Malawi is the most biodiverse lake in the world and by protecting fish breeding areas it encourages regrowth of reeds and other plant life which in turn sees birds return to these areas.
The community-led fish conservation project protects endangered and economically important fish species whilst sustaining livelihoods and food security.
Forests provide a good habitat for a number of animals including Vervet monkeys. By protecting forests is allows them to naturally regenerate and we are now seeing wildlife returning to live in the forests.
So far 53 breeding areas are protected along 400km of lakeshore and 340 sq.km of forest. This is being achieved through simple sustainable solutions.
