Ugandan Communities Committed to Conservation

Home to chimpanzees, elephants, monkeys and countless other species, Uganda’s Kibale National Park is threatened by small-scale fuel wood collection. New Nature Foundation’s multi-faceted approach achieves positive outcomes for both wildlife and people. In this Impact Speaker Series, Rebecca Goldstone, President and Co-Founder of New Nature Foundation, will focus on Oakland Zoo’s role in expanding this grass roots campaign to now include 5 target areas, reaching tens of thousands of Ugandans and preserving millions of pounds of firewood each year.
