Sustaining a proven model that unites health and conservation

Project summary

Poverty and biodiversity are closely linked with hotspots being geographically coincident: one such location is Kibale National Park, Uganda. Here a diverse ecosystem is threatened. We will promote a union of health care and conservation using our mobile clinic and Science Centers, providing medical care to 16,000 people and outreach to 250,000 a year. This grant will enable us to enact a sustainability plan that includes training staff in the creation of documentary films, social media promotions and conducting surveys to evaluate our effectiveness in maintaining wildlife and improving the community’s well-being.
