Project update2011-11-02

The natural enclosure of Augustin’s Ecopark consists of 2 parts: first, a row of lemon trees, then a band of acacia mellifera, a thorny plant replacing the barbed wire that was initially planned. In order to give the young lemon trees and the acasias time to grow so they can protect the forest, a wooden enclosure will be built around the most endangered sides of the Ecopark. Copy the following link (Casamance_Ecoparc_Limites_2011.kml) to Google Earth to visualize the Ecopark's enclosure. Your donations will fund the wood and the supporting structure of the fence. The wood comes from a plantation controlled by the Forestry Administration of Ziguinchor, the capital city of Casamance. The plantation in Ziguinchor serves also as a training center for young forest rangers established thanks to the cooperation between Senegal and Switzerland.
