Bamboo Ecotours continues to provide Covid-19 relief support to ecotourism dependant communities of Kisoro district in Uganda. We have donated food items to 40 Batwa families in Nyarusiza sub-county, adjacent to Mgahinga gorilla national park. As former inhabitants of the gorilla parks, the Batwa community are critical stakeholders in mountain gorilla conservation and need support from tour operators during these difficult times. Follow the link below to learn more about the Covid-19 relief efforts of Bamboo Ecotours in the communities living close to the mountain gorilla parks of Bwindi and Mgahinga.
The Covid-19 support to local communities is in line with the mission of Bamboo Ecotours. We promote tours that generate revenue to the local communities adjacent to protected areas in Uganda, with the understanding that there is an opportunity cost for local people to preserve and protect these fragile ecosystems. As a local tour operator, we must stand with these communities in these challenging times.
We are grateful to a Bamboo Ecotours client who has donated the funds to support the Batwa families. Thank you Mr. T.M. Without your support, the donation to the Batwa families would not be possible. For more information on Bamboo Ecotours Covid-19 relief efforts, check this link.
