Forest Regeneration

Illegal logging and widespread slash-and-burn agriculture is threatening to compromise the Lamu district’s ecosystem services and overall biodiversity by affecting the structure and function of the forested areas.

The regeneration of degraded forested areas within Amu Ranch and its bordering ranches is another of the LCT’s core objectives.

A successful tree-planting program is already in place, planting thousands of indigenous tree saplings throughout areas where logging and agriculture has taken its toll on the environment, having nurtured the seedlings at Amu Ranch’s tree nursery at Farouk’s Camp.
