Our Forest Conservation Committees are all striving to protect their existing areas of forest so it’s particularly nice when you learn that one Committee has inspired and motivated another.
The Chidambo Forest Conservation Committee have seen the success that the Chibisa Committee have had with protecting their trees, creating firebreaks and seeing trees regenerate. They want the same outcome so are getting busy clearing areas and creating firebreaks.
Bryne, the Forest Conservation project Manager said, “They are optimistic that more young trees will be saved. This is the area they wish to work on this year to ensure that wildfire should not burn young trees.”
