Thank you for joining this restoration journey at Mount Mulanje in Malawi. As well as restoring 24,000 ha of degraded forests and engaging the local community, one of the project’s goals is to support the incredible biodiversity of Mount Mulanje.

The structure and altitude of the mountain has led to a unique climate in the area that favours the development of rare and endemic life forms. Several of these species are classified by IUCN’s Red List as vulnerable, endangered or even critically endangered. The Mulanje Cedar tree (Widdringtonia whytei) is considered critically endangered, and the Mulanje Pygmy Chameleon (Rhampholeon platyceps), endemic to this specific forest reserve, is considered endangered. The Yellow-throated Apalis (Apalis flavigularis)is an endangered bird that can only be found in here and at one other neighbouring mountain, the Zomba plateau.

Thank you for your support in protecting these rare and vulnerable species!
