Conserving our planet's botanical resources and ecosystems

European storks roosting in Ethiopian church forests

The Max Planck Institute, under the leadership of scientist Dr. Martin Wikelski, has mapped the migration of European storks. Some of the radio-collared birds have roosted in our Ethiopian church forests! This amazing discovery means that church forests not only conserve African biodiversity, but play an important role in the health of European bird populations. We hope to partner with Martin and pursue this research further — stay tuned!
