The New Nature Foundation (NNF) strives to conserve wild animals and wild places through education, empowerment, and an emphasis on creative solutions that promote people living in harmony with nature. Its current work focuses on protecting Kibale National Park in Western Uganda. Kibale is home to the densest primate population in all of Africa. The forest is also classified as an Important Bird Area, with 339 bird species, and hosts 77 species of mammals, 75 species of reptiles and amphibians, and at least 12 fish species.
Since 2006, the Kibale Fuel Wood Project has been working to protect Kibale NP from encroachment and improve park-people relations though providing alternatives to fuelwood collection within the Park – through tree planting and building of fuel-efficient stoves.
