Dakatcha Woodland in Kenya, one of only two sites in the world with the globally endangered Clarke’s weaver, could be completely destroyed by a biofuel project of an Italian multinational corporation: here. And here.
The Dakatcha Woodland in Kenya – home to several globally threatened bird species – would have been destroyed if proposals for a plantation of the biofuel crop jatropha were given the green light. However after a long battle the Kenyan government has formally recognised the environmental damage that would be caused by this European project: here.
NatureKenya (BirdLife Partner) is looking for funds to help save the Kinangop grassland. This habitat is vital for the Endangered Sharpe’s Longclaw Macronyx sharpei. It is endemic to Kenya and can only survive in this rapidly diminishing habitat, which is being destroyed to make way for agriculture and urban development: here.
Scale up work on poverty reduction and biodiversity policy making pays off in Dakatcha woodlands in Kenya: here.
