Dodo has been granted MFA’s funding for a new forest conservation project in Gambia! In a two-year project starting in January 2021, Dodo’s goal is to apply the forest mapping and monitoring method, that was originally developed for Madagascar by FANC (The Finnish Association for Nature Conservation), and to help residents of the local village of Jiffarong adapt to climate change by creating new sources of income – for example vegetable gardening.

The new project offers many opportunities for volunteers to participate, for example through communications and fundraising. If you want to be a part of the global change, come along! Email sanni.siukola-ndure(at) and tell us what you are interested in.
