About the Project

Nlonako is home to the Giant Frog and a primary focus of conservation efforts. Mt. Nlonako is the most reptilian species rich area in Africa. TREES is working with farmers in this landscape to plant Forest Gardens near existing indigenous forests as buffers to prevent further deforestation and pressure on the forest and amphibian habitat.
