The Mihingo Conservation and Community Development Foundation
The Mihingo Conservation and Community Development Foundation is a separate entity to Mihingo Lodge with the aim to improve the living conditions of the surrounding communities and improve conservation efforts on the eastern side of Lake Mburo National Park . The aim of the project is to conserve all predators in and around Lake Mburo National Park through education and compensating farmers, who have had livestock killed by leopard or hyena. Many farmers around Lake Mburo National Park experience livestock depredation several times a year. The main reaction is to poison livestock carcasses resulting in the death of predator species and many non-target species. The obvious consequence is a negative impact on the biodiversity in the Lake Mburo area.
