Forests are local, national & global wealth. It must be managed dedicatedly, attentively, and carefully. With your support, we can conserve, protect and restore forests around the world for the benefit of all including youself & nature. Be warned!! It is not only about Mabira reserve but also about those forest(s) near your home place.
Mabira Forest reserve is not just a forest. It is home to 312 species of tree and 199 species of butterfly. Recent Exploratory Inventories carried out in Mabira (for both the production and buffer zones) show that there are close to 2.5 million trees in every hectare. Mabira has wild Robusta coffee, dioscoria tubers (yams) and other plants whose value is still largely unknown. And being the only large forest in the bio-geographical zone of the Lake Victoria Crescent, it provides the only watershed for this already water stressed area.

Mabira Forest Reserve is listed by BirdLife International as an Important Bird Area (IBA). The forest contains over 300 species of bird, including the Endangered Nahan's Francolin Francolinus nahani. The forest also supports nine species of primate, a recently identified new mangabey subspecies in Uganda, Lophocebus albigena johnstoni and a new species of Short-tailed Fruit Bat. Studies have shown that the potential revenue from tourism alone at Mabira was in excess of the costs of managing the Reserve.
