As a large-scale mechanised seed potato producer, Kilimo Kisasa feels obliged to protect and recover the natural environment in Zombo district. Christopher of Embaka (African Golden Cat Foundation) helped us with a vegetation inventory to identify and map plant species in our wetlands. By identifying plant species, we are able to understand which indigenous species are already present and how the area needs to be managed in order to enhance biodiversity and recover nature in our Zombo swamps. This will benefit many insects, reptiles, birds and mammals (like the otter). It also conserves wetlands as clean water sources, improves soil quality in the area and enhances the resilience of surrounding communities.
