Presentation by Michael Stern and Rebecca Goldstone, founders, Kibale Community Fuel Wood Project. Begun in 2001 to preserve the forests of Kibale National Park, the project is a collaboration between McGill University, Chimp-n-Sea Wildlife Conservation Fund and the Uganda Wildlife Authority. It establishes demonstration tree nurseries and private woodlots, and educates and trains local students and park people about energy stability and fuel wood management. By creating a legal wood source the project helps to secure a stable future for both wildlife and humans.
