The Ishasha Valley transboundary ecosystem is part of the Greater Virunga Landscape, which is one of the most biodiverse and threatened landscapes on the planet. According to studies, its large mammal populations have declined dramatically over the last 25 years. Poaching, habitat destruction, and proximity to armed conflict zones have all hampered conservation efforts in the region, with large mammals such as lions, elephants, and hippos paying the highest price.




Your support will help strengthen the Park's critical infrastructure in the Ishasha valley by making Ranger operations energy independent. This will improve anti-poaching patrols and allow for more effective monitoring of the Ishasha valley.
