Our techniques are guided by data and science. We think it's important to include scientific data while we work through different project areas. Our current Tanzania project takes place in the West Usambara Mountains. This area is a biodiverse hotspot meaning it has a high number of endemic species (species only found in this area of the world) and is threatened by habitat loss. Illegal logging, illegal hunting, pollution, fuelwood collection, commercial agriculture, and deforestation are some of the main stressors for the area and we believe it is important to properly document the area in which we work.
Our scientific expedition for this area will be primarily focused on data collection of species loss and how it has impacted rural communities.
