Fauna & Flora is protecting biodiversity and improving the livelihoods of local communities in Bire Kpatous Game Reserve, Bangangai Game Reserve and Southern National Park.
Our work in South Sudan
Fauna & Flora works in south-western South Sudan, the only region of South Sudan in which eastern chimpanzees, African forest elephants and African golden cats co-exist.
The current project is focused on protecting biodiversity and improving the livelihoods of local communities within two game reserves. Delivering protected area management and maintaining community-managed areas within the game reserves requires the Wildlife Service rangers and the communities adjacent to the reserves to work closely together – cooperation that is unique to this area of South Sudan.
Fauna & Flora and our partners conduct patrols to help enforce wildlife laws as this area of South Sudan has historically fallen within a regional wildlife trafficking corridor. Wildlife is also at risk from poaching and unsustainable harvesting of wild meat by local communities.
