To put is simply; our idea is that ecotourism might be a way to improve lives of local people in Taita Hills. As people would benefit from these species and forests it would be their best interest to conserve these animals and forests. This would lead to win-win situation where conservation of forests would mitigate climate change, increase water catchment and protect thousands of endangered species.
