Its been more than a year that SABUKO works in Chachuna MR and tries to engage shepherds and farmers in the process of protecting the local biodiversity and landscape from degradation.
To achieve this goal, SABUKO aims introduction of rotational grazing scheme and explain its importance and benefits to farmers. One of them has already started to follow pasture management plan developed by SABUKO.
In a bid to preserve the unique biodiversity of Iori floodplain forests, SABUKO offered farmers an alternative water resource for sheep to drink in Chachuna managed reserve and nearby territories.
SABUKO set up 8 watering ponds and a well in Chachuna managed reserve and across nearby territories to provide locally accessible water for thousands of sheep.
Later, as COVID-19 brought new challenges for everyone, SABUKO did it’s best to stay supportive towards farmers and distantly provided necessary help, including financial – e.g. purchasing medicaments for sheep.
