The Sira Communal Reserve is home to at least 300 bird species, 124 mammals, 140 reptiles and 109 types of fish identified to date, although the real numbers are believed to be higher. People with special knowledge in the field of Biology could help us by observing and documenting different species in this rural area of biodiversity and anlysing the damage cost by illegal/legal logging and illegal gold mining. We can use this data to contact other organizations and to apply for specific funding for environmental programs.
We are also starting a reforest program in damaged areas and will need volunteers to make this possible.
People with skills in permaculture could share this with us and host workshops for the local farmers.
