Project objectives

The project’s main objectives were to improve the habitat of this species. This was done by putting in place management plans to control soil erosion and by mobilizing local communities to become directly involved in existing forest management initiatives. The project staff also collected more and better information about the Sagalla Caecilian and remove the invasive Eucalyptus plantations. More generally the project also increased local awareness and capacity-building around these conservation issues.

This project is implemented by Zoological Society of London.
