Successive floods hit our activities during November, December and January.
The nursery managed by the Jane Goodall Institute France, thanks to your invaluable support, was partially washed away by the overflow of the small Gasango river in the commune of Rumonge.
Thanks to a natural barrier on this river, the majority of the bags were laid down by the torrent and not washed away. We were able to recover and restore them. Nevertheless, around 3,000 of the nursery's 20,000 trees were completely washed away.
On the other hand, further south, in the commune of Nyanza, not far from the border with Tanzania, on the edge of the chimpanzee ecological corridor, a second nursery with 30,000 trees was completely washed away by the overflowing Mushara River. Unfortunately, only around 50 trees were able to recover.
These floods have caused a great deal of damage: to homes, crops, road infrastructure.
Unfortunately, scientists' predictions say that the waters of Lake Tanganyika will reach their highest level in May 2024.
But with the hope of a fairer world for people, animals and nature, we're not giving up!
Thank you for your support dear Captains, thanks to you, our team on the ground has been able to repair the damage of these floods and will be able to ensure the continuity of our action on the ground!!
Together, we can.
Together, we will succeed!
