In addition to timber and paper products, forests are a wildlife habitat, they prevent soil erosion and flooding, and help provide clean air and water, etc.

Unfortunately, some natural forests in Kisoro District have been cleared for wood fuel, timber products, agriculture etc.
If this backward practice is not controlled, the forests will gradually disappear.

The major cases have been registered along the Bwindi impenetrable Forest stretch in Nyabwishenya and Kirundo sub-counties, Kisoro District.
Let’s take action such that the forests are not depleted.
