Biodiversity Preservation Center (BPC), a Non- Governmental Organization (NGO), was established in 1996 and incorporated under the Corporate Affairs Commission of Nigeria (CAC) since 2003, has been collaborating with identified communities and programs to stem the ugly trend of forest loss and encourage restoration. Selected communities that still have undestroyed natural forests have been identified and a number of targeted programs put in place with the aim of creating opportunities for the people to fully understand and appreciate the problems resulting from the habitat destruction. On the other hand, the people are empowered to participate in biodiversity preservation and at the same time given the right orientation on how to sustainably utilize NTFPs for their livelihood and economic needs.
BPC in its efforts to foster in-situ conservation in NIgeria have worked with multi-lateral agencies and governments to identify selected communities that still have remnant natural forests and endemic wildlife by anchoring targeted programs towards creating opportunities for the communities to fully understand and appreciate the benfits of biodiversity conservation and how it fosters sustainable development.
CEPF Tortoise Project
This project focuses on understanding the extent and impact of forest habitat loss and fragmentation and hunting, on two heavily threatened (one CR and one EN) species of vertebrates (Kinixys homeana and K. erosa). The project will add both an ecosystem-scale and a local scale components to previous species- or site-based research and actions (see below for the statistical details). It will provide the technical input required to generate vital landsca.
