1: Wildlife conservation and Research

WICO conducts social and ecological research for sake of wildlife and community. Our recently research is on Conservation of the Nguru Spiny Pygmy Chameleon (Rhampholeon acuminatus), a critically endangered chameleon and endemic to South Nguru Mountain in Tanzania. Moreover we plan to use the finding of research and indigenous local knowledge to carry various conservation initiatives including habitat restoration, waste collection and management.

2: Women empowerment programs

We conduct diverse programs to women, with aim of boosting their engagement in conservation and supporting them to earn their livelihood. Below are some of key activities that directly engage women:

  • Empowering women/girls who are perusing the career in wildlife by supporting their dream. Majority of beneficiary are from colleges and universities or recent graduates
  • Launching environmental conservation activities in local schools. In each our project we ensure maximum participation of girl. We are launching environmental conservation initiatives in local schools for young girls in both primary and secondary schools. We guarantee that as many females as possible participate in each of our projects.
  • Supporting women from local community to carry out ecologically friendly income- generating ventures.

3: Community engagement and capacity building

We strongly believe in local indigenous knowledge and a participatory approach to conservation. In any of our projects, we optimize the engagement of the local community. We train them and build their capacity to take part in conservation.
