End of the Year - Preventing Bushmeat Poaching

As the  year winds down we would like thank all  of our friends and supporters of the Okapi Conservation Project who help us to conserve the important forests and wildlife in Africa.  Our bushmeat project has worked closely with the rangers in the Okapi Wildlife Reserve to reduce illegal poaching.  Your support in 2010 has helped us to develop community conservation committees around the Okapi Wildlife Reserve, working with local customary chiefs to engage them to take an active role in the stewardship of their natural forest and wildlife heritage.   In 2011 these community conservation committees will be encouraged to focus on their regional communities and help the Okapi Wildlife Reserve rangers control illegal hunting for bushmeat and ivory.  We hope you will share our project success with your friends and consider helping us in 2011 with a gift that makes our world a better place. 

Wishing you happy and safe holidays from the Okapi Conservation Project.
