Ornithology Program


This focuses on research and conservation of the Birds of the Bamenda Highlands, Kilum-Ijim forest and Mt Mbam. They are known for their exceptional species richness including a high number of endangered species (with presence of unique wildlife such as the Bannerman’s Turaco and Banded Wattle-eye).

The ornithology program is focused on promoting bee farming as a strategy to reduce forest fires and feather harvesting, considered greatest threats to birds and other biodiversity in this landscape.
