Keep the Mabira Forest in Uganda




The government of Uganda is about to give away 7100 hectares (over 17.100 acres) of the Mabira rainforest to the Sugar Corporation of Uganda, Ltd. (SCOUL), to clear cut and establish a sugarcane plantation. This grant of free land would increase erosion, diminish fresh water supplies, destroy a cooling micro-climate and destroy habitats for hundreds of endangered species. It would also violate legal protections as stated in Ugandan law and international treaties and commitments.
