Project objectives

The project team expects a major increase in awareness and a process that will start adaptive management of the cave habitat.

Other outcomes will be the avoidance of extinction of two Critically Endangered species through the engagement of a faith community which will serve as an excellent case study. It is hoped that there will eventually be an increase in the number of crabs in the cave.

This project is implemented by Fauna and Flora International.
