Purpose of the Bonamanzi Project

To conserve an ecosystem it is important to know what species are present. Species are the 'building-blocks' of the ecosystem.

This Bonamanzi Project aims to compile a list of the species that contribute to the richness of this nature reserve.

Join this project and, should you visit Bonamanzi, add your observations. Every observation helps.
